Default Who makes the stock bulbs?

I wonder who made the stock headlight bulbs for 97 SSEI? I just pulled one of the busted driver side out.. and decided to pull them all out and notice my lows and highs are made by Sylvania

Actually the OEM should be Sylvania. They make a good bulb.

Yes they are.

I have some sylvania in mine, whatever was in there when I bought it. They seem very bright, and fill a very good area for a stock bulb.

Yeah, mine had GE'* in it. Bit it is several years older than yours, changes may have been made.
