I only run mine when the climate/speed conditions call for it.
55w Silverstars aren't going to be brighter then 55w hella lamps. They have a blue coating which will reduce light output, all the SS'* do is cause more glare which appears to be more light. Andrew and I did some testing on my car with a pack of SS'* and such. Whenever i pluck my camera from the car, i'll show you.
But smellbird kinda turned me onto H4 bulbs (i think). They're a dual filament (hi/low beam) bulb. I'm tempted to look into this at some point.
