Much better. The "Cool Blue" bulbs just project blue-coloured light. Whereas the Silverstars are actually noticably brighter (to me at least) and produce a lot "cleaner" light (that is, the light is more consistant on the road, fewer dark patches, etc.)

Silverstars looks yellowish white and wont have any whitw white or blue whitish look. Not much different than stock to me.

I've been using SilverStars for a while, and the difference between them and the regular bulbs I used before is incredible. Everything is more visible, and the light field they put out is a lot larger.

Besides, the whole blue-light fad is on its way out.
Agreed.. I have the Silverstars and love them.... It makes the nite travel here in Florida bareable.... I was shocked at the diffrence.... I had the Blues in it before and the Extra Visions before that... The silverstars are in my 95 and the Blues are in my 91...

The silverstars and the upgrade of the driving lamps made all the diffrence...

Vote for silverstars here... And the rice around here has the Blue bulbs... Those are annoying...

Was the diference really noticeable in the driving lights when you swapped to silverstars?

On the way to work last night, I was flipping the driving lamps on and off... Man what a diffrence... I have yet to be flashed so I must have them aimed ok... They are great in rainy weather...

well, i spent 40 bucks, and got the silverstars for my low beams, they look pretty darn good, but they arent quite as pure a white as i expected, still pretty nice though.
