SilverStars are still the overwhelming favorite here.

if you want to see good in the snow and rain, get yellow bulbs

white just reflects

I don't think the ebay ones were whiter, they were definetly more bluer on the color spectru though. The SS had no noticable improvement over the bulbs i had in there at the time in light output, or size.

No White is Good, Blue is Bad. witch Silver starts are more in the Blue then White.

Yellow is Better for Snow, Fog & Rain. But will not give you as much visible light output on Dry roads.

Silver starts are Good, But be warned they are not going to be as good as normal Good Halogen Bulbs in the Rain.

If you want the Most for your money and still want to see good in rain, Get Some Knight Hawks, They less then Silver Stars but are just as bright but dont have Any blue Tint on them.

I have these on my car and I love them. They are a lot brighter than the stock bulbs and have a better color than the silverstars.
