over all they are much brighter than the stock headlight....i have NOT driven at night with them yet, but they do show promise....

also FWIW the lights do NOT have any blue color, they are a Pure White light

the reason why this works good in the 96+ headlights is because there is a glare shield in the HL housing already

So all the difference is, is that the bulb is more watts and it brighter.

there still may be a little more glare then normally jut because the filament may sit in a diffrent spot then the 9006.
