Alrighty, so after going through about 5 boxes of Eurolites during the past 1.5 years, I decided it was time to change. The Eurolites I was using were rice bulbs, had a very dark blue tint to them, but the light produced was a nice pure white, which looked very good, not even ricey at all. Too bad they don't last long. So I decided to pay double, get something with a little more yellow to it, and a 1 year warranty! I picked these up from Canadian Tire for ~$60.
Test Car: 2002 VW Golf.
Headlamps: Hella E-Codes
Bulbs: Sylvania Silverstars (H7)
(I apologise in advance for the pics being somewhat blurry, this camera I borrowed has a tiny lens, so no matter how still I hold it, it still blurs!)
Pic1: Camera on roof of car, showing spread.

Pic2: In Parking Lot.

Pic3: Again.

Pic4: And another.

Pic5: Parked behind car with regular bulbs.

Pic6: Zoomed.

Pic7: And last one.


Conclusion
Yes I am happy with them, mainly because of the 1 year warranty. I'm tired of having to replace bulbs so often! The camera in the pics somewhat exaggerated the whiteness of them, but for sure they are whiter than more cars on the road, but NOT as white as rice bulbs. Imagine those being even whiter. They do however put out alot of light onto the road at the same time! SO these I recommend. This is the perfect combo, nice light / color.

Sorry to tell you , but silverstars are still rice bulbs. They just have a bigger advertising budget.

This is why people get Silverstars. Brighter light, less power needed. I'll be getting H4 and H1, then some for wifes Jetta. I am an alt killer. I'm done with 80/100 bulbs. Brighter with less power. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Those are some of the best comparison pics I've seen. I think I'll pick up a set soon. Thanks for the post.
