This is a very informative thread.
I went into Fred Meyer while on my layovers on New Year'* Day ( I'm a Bus Driver...hence, the name 'BusMaster007'... ) and was checking the Sylvania display in the automotive section. The amazing part is I went in 5 times and didn't spend any money!
Anyway, I was looking at the Cool Blue and the Silver Star. BIG price difference.
$25 for the Silver Star. $12 for the Cool Blue.
I didn't know which # to get, though, as they listed both a 9005 and 9006.
I saw a difference in the plug-ins, and couldn't determine which was correct, so I opted to wait until I saw what came out of my car.
There was a single or double tab protruding into the plug-in cover.
willwren, thanks for the input on the differences between the bulbs.
Seattle is known for being wet and gloomy 9 months out of the year, and, with my varying schedule, I find myself driving to and from the Base in the dark and in the rain quite often.
The Silver Star sounds like the best bet for what I want to see.
