These class of bulbs draw stock wattage. They are designed to function as stock replacement for OEM light. And they do put out more light.ytk said:does the extra wattage create any heat or power drain problems? Does it really provide additional illumination? Is it worth the money and effort to purchase/install?
I'm surprised by your experience. It sounds like you used a product totally different than the one I used.dshealey said:I have Silver Stars now, and was really disappointed in them. Put one in, turned on the lights, and was surprised that I could hardly tell the difference in it and the standard halogen on the other side.
Interesting. The same day this thread go rolling, I happened to purchase a Sylvania SilverStar bulb for my LT. I feel there is a very small improvement, maybe equal to the $25 I paid for the bulb. I guess I got my money's worth.dshealey said:Raffy:
Have you seen the Vision Plus compared to the Sylvania Silver Star? I put the Silver Stars in my BMW cars high beams, and it was a total waste of money. Very little difference in them and the stock halogens. Still very yellow compared to the HID low beams. If the Vision Plus are actually close in color to the HIDs I may try them instead of the Silver Star rip offs.
