Aftermarket headlight brands
One of the front headlights went out on the Bonneville. I wanted to keep both the sides the same (I typically replaced them in pairs). The cost of the aftermarket lights are pricey, so wanted to shop around.
What I found was that AutoZOne, Oriellys, AdvanceAuto, and Walmart only carry Sylvania lamps (and some no name cheap brand). I wondered why the only carried one brand, and that the prices seemed high at all the part stores.
I went to RockAuto, and they carry 5 different brands, but not Sylvania. RockAuto lamps were about half that of AutoZone, although i could not compare exact brands.
Wondering if all the retailers are in "cahoots", only selling one brand, all the same, when there are other big name brands like GE, that are not being sold at the big retailers.
