Today I purchased some Sylvania Silver Stars for my Cougar. I got them for $16.50 each after price matching Pep Boy's sale price at Auto Zone. The stock ones I removed were Sylvania halogens, not sure the specfic ones but I am think they are the lowest ones they make. I only replaced the low beams.

The result: I am very satisfied, they are brighter thain the ones I removed and much whiter. The only wish I have is if they were even brighter, but I think the only thing brighter is HIDs and I dont want to spend that much.

The pics: Pic 1 is the lights faced against my garage, you can see how much whiter they are. Pic 2 is just pictures of the head lights themselves. Pic 3 is of the bulbs themselves.

Now I see there are the same
Huh? Confused with your wording, are you saying that your $20 bulbs are the same as the Silverstars. If so why were you trying to get rid of them, I love my Silverstars.

Well mine are real bright also, but they shine white not blue. For the pics shining against the garage, I pulled the car up till the edges of the headlight's beams went from side to side of the garage. You may notice that for the pic with the Silver Stars, the car is much closer to the garage to get the same width of the beam, showing the difference in brightness.
