I've never heard of Osram and what's the difference between them and the regular ones?

Osram is the parent company of Sylvania.

The Sylvania Silverstars have a blue coating that is then coated in silver to produce HID-esque blue tinged light. This of course hurts performance, and also causes a hotter bulb.

The Osram Silverstars are functionally the same except they have a completely clear lens. No blue tinge, just pure bright white. They are rated as 50% brighter than typical bulbs. These are also not sold in North America, they are only available in E-code bulb types (H1, H4, etc.).

I don't think they make the 9006 & 9005 (i'm shure thats what you meant) as stated by Mystical earlier.

Here is a link to thier halogen bulbs..... http://www.osram.com/products/automotive/halogen.html
