Osram Silverstar +50% H1/H4/H7 Headlight Bulbs
 
1 Attachment(s)
Real Osram Bulbs , made in Germany. Euro only item.

Osram Silver Star H1/H4/H7


50% more light on the road and the winner of the Auto Express 2003 Autobulb Test!

Produced by one of the world's leading automotive lighting manufacturers, Osram Silverstar meets and exceeds the quality and performance you'd expect. Awarded the Auto Express 'Best Buy' award, it really is one of the best bulbs you can install in your vehicle. Here are just a few of the benefits:

*Giving up to 50% More Light on the road
*Objects and situations can be seen clearly at a distance of 75 metres
*Service life comparable to that of standard H4 and H7 lamps.
Up to 50% more light on the road!

And don't just take our word for it. Here's what Auto Express, the UK's leading car publication, said about the bulbs.

"The flagship bulb in Osram's range, the Silverstar's 75m figure was only a fraction better than that of arch-rival Philips (right), but it performed significantly better at 50m. Add a price advantage, and the Osram's plus 50 per cent competitor is our Best Buy." - 5 star award.


Q: What is the difference between the Sylvania Silverstar and the Osram Silverstar?

A: Osram Sylvania is one and the same company, within the US they use both Osram and Sylvania, outside the US its Osram. The Osram Silverstar is a clear bulb with Xenon gas boost to increase brightness up to 50%, color is similar to standard halogen though it is slightly whiter. The Sylvania Silverstar is the same bulb but with an amethyst blue coating with 30% more light than standard halogen and 4000K light color which is comparable to Xenon/High Intensity Discharge Light Systems as seen on high end cars from Acura, Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Lexus, Mercedes Benz, Porsche to name a few.

All these bulbs are stock wattage so it will not have any effect on wiring.


Prices:
$29.95 (per pair H1 or H4) shipped to U.S 48 states.
$31.95 (per pair H1 or H4) shipped to Canada
$34.95 (per pair H7) shipped to U.S 48 states.
$36.95 (per pair H7) shipped to Canada

They are totally different in performance Jon. The Osram's are the best bulbs available right now, period. And that price is REALLY good.

Would these bulbs fit in my car? This H1/H4/H7 stuff confuses me... all i know is my low beams are 9006 and highs are 9005.

Also, You say these wont effect my wiring... I went through 2 pairs of those cheaper xenon's already cause they burned my wiring harnes... If these burned my wiring harness, could I get my money back?

thanks

You will need euro ellipsoids (ZKW, Bosch, Inpro, Depo...) to use H1 or H7 bulbs. your stock U.S spec headlights uses 9005 and 9006.

I believe they are stock wattage too. so it won't be any different than your stock bulbs in term of safety for your harness. check before you buy.
