Sylvania Silverstar Bulbs
I would like to know your experience with the Sylvania Silverstar bulbs. I was comparing the packages of the Silverstars and the standard Sylvania bulbs, and they both have the same wattage. If you look on the package you can see this. So, how can the Silverstars be brighter? I do not see any difference`s between the bulbs either.
As a Electrician, my logic tells me that bulbs of the same type and wattage put out the same lumens. (brightness) Only when the wattage of the bulb increases can you get a brighter bulb. The color spectrum does not change the lumens either. It just may appear brighter.
I passed on the Silverstars and bought the standard Sylvania`s.

I'm not knocking your choice I'm just laying out the facts. So many people slap cheap HIDs into their vehicle to see better and forget the repercussions on others around them. We don't own the road, we share it... and if our actions negatively impact others even a bit ... we've been irresponsible.

Here's some reading to help elucidate what I'm getting at. It's worth the time, especially when you hit the optical illusions that are merely generated by the use of different colours and shapes. When you hit this section and start to see the impacts of various aspects of vision, next try to imagine different shades of light on many, many shapes, while moving ... and extrapolate a bit. http://www.cns.nyu.edu/~david/course...-contrast.html

I have installed a couple of sets of those, they lasted about a year, just as advertised. I think they worked great, just would like to have lights that last longer than a year.

I have used the silverstars and loved them. They ARE brighter and other drivers seemed to think so also. I got the one finger salute a few times.
