Although from other member'* experiences, they don't seem to last as long in 2000+. I've had them in my 94 for 3 years without any of them burning out or melting anything (and my car is Canadian too, so that means daytime running lights, so they get a lot more use)

Sylvania is Silverstars...I think you mean Cool Blue vs Silverstars??

If in that case...my experience the Cool Blue was almost half the price...but I'd much rather have the Silverstars

My Cool Blues just burned out the other day after 2 1/2 years in my 01 bonnie, but for some reason Canadian Tire isn't carrying them any more so i had to go with the SS thanks to my hubby. The SS are bright enough, but i like the white of the Cool Blues.
Just my opinion ...
