that's not the ones i am talking about. on ebay they are from europe and the subaru guys have proven them for years. the 55w designation is only the power consumption , not the brightness or lumens.

its not a question of amiability, you want to go out for a beer n/p, just post a link, many members would love to find your product that will fit what they are looking for, it has nothing to do with friendship. If you know of a product that people are praising and you also than post a link so other members can enjoy the same products you do. Thats what forums are for to share this information so others can also enjoy them, maybe some have not found what you found or tried and did not find what you are using, if you feel your product is what members are looking for, benefit them by posting a link

What halogen bulbs are you referring to?

What style is the bulb? H9005, H9006, H11?

What is the lumen output?

What is the wattage of the bulbs?

And what makes them brighter?

you can post links of products from ebay, no problem, many do, even links to the products manufacture themselves is no problem, no worries. If it benefits the members here its no problem, if the moderators don't like it they will just delete the post, no big deal.

You are probably talking about the Osram Silverstar 2.0

If anyone is interested in these types of bulbs, Here is an interesting article on the 2013 best European headlight Bulbs for 2013.

I read the results for each bulb listed in the article and they mention the test results being shown in (Bulb's Beam Rating). The best is 107.5 and the worst is 83.3 over a standard halogen bulb.

My question really is, what is (Bulb's Beam Rating) and measured with what? They didn't say from what I was able to find.

If the measurement is in (Lumens) 100 Lumens or equal to 100 candlepower is very little gain.

So in my opinion, from what I read, still comes down to the halogen bulbs change in glass and the filament used to get a different color of visible light (Kelvin).

High priced halogen bulbs for little gain.

this is what i found. earlier in the article it says Osrams from overseas.

Osram Silverstars–
So now that you know the truth about the Sylvania Silverstars and all the BAD ideas with bulbs, its time to hear about the best bulbs you can buy. They are called the 55W Ultra High Efficacy Plus 50. These bulbs include the Narva Rangepower+50, Osram Silverstar, Tungsram Megalicht or Philips VisionPlus.

These bulbs produce the maximum amount of legal light and don’t have any coatings on the outside of the bulb.

- A standard bulb produces 1550 Lumens.
- A Plus +50 bulb produces 1750 lumens.

These bulbs are manufactured with the highest quality standards and are the best legal bulbs you can put into a car. I have these bulbs in my car, and I love them. They are the brightest bulbs I have used, and highly suggest these.
