NIGHTHAWK vs. SILVERSTAR

Has anyone tried the new GE NIGHTHAWK Headlights? Are they brighter and
better than Sylvania SilverStar Headlights?

Re: NIGHTHAWK vs. SILVERSTAR

The Nighthawk puts more visible light on the road. The SilverStar
produces a whiter light thru the use of a light blue tint on the glass,
but doesn't put anymore useable light (probably less) on the road than
the 'base' Sylvania bulb - it's (SilverStar) just a marketing gimmick.

The real question is if the Nighthawk bulbs pull more wattage to be
brighter, like ricer bulbs off ebay, good at burning out wiring harnesses.

Re: NIGHTHAWK vs. SILVERSTAR

I bought a set of the GE NIGHTHAWK 9007 headlight bulbs on 4/11. They are
good, but still not as bright as I wanted. If I had to describe their
brightness, I would have to they are pretty close to Sylvania Cool Blues.

That being said, I exchanged the NIGHTHAWK bulbs for some Sylvania
SilverStar 9007 headlight bulbs on 4/21. MUCH BETTER! The light from the
SilverStars is perfectly white and I can see more at night. The light has
no blue tint even though the bulb's glass has a blue tint. I like my light
bright and white!
