I was pretty happy with the GE Nighthawks I had in my car for 3.5 years as a '+1' upgrade. The Sylvania XtraVisions were even a smidge brighter for the 9 months they lasted. Philips VisionPlus are what's in there now. We'll see what the drive home tonight is like.

Sylvania's burned me too many times now so never again. Their 'Long Life' line of marker and taillight bulbs have proven to be garbage.

A quick inspection reveals that most of Sylvania's marker lamps are produced in third-world nations, and probably to an inferior quality standard. You are indeed correct: they are garbage.

One of the best options for marker lamps is a local Honda or Acura dealer. The Honda bulbs are made in the United States by Stanley Lighting, and are of excellent quality. They are pricey, but they are, in my opinion, worth the additional cost over the Sylvania/no-name bulbs.

Here is a brief cross-reference:

Well, the Philips VisionPlus is a decent bulb I guess but I'm disappointed. The beam pattern and overall light output seems softer and slightly yellower than the XtraVisions they replaced which was contrary to what I've read about them. I'm sticking with them but I won't be buying another set.

You guys have any suggestions for my old truck? '92 Chevy K1500. Wouldn't mind some brighter low-beams but Silverstars are like 40 bucks a pair and I've always heard how quickly they burn out. Anything that's better, brighter, and whiter than stock but won't break the bank and will last almost as long as OEM?

You can run a relay directly from your battery to your lights so you don't get the voltage drop the factory harness gives you. I've seen them as a specific vehicle harness or build it yourself.

Went to an inexpensive HID setup. Love them and cost $60 for the pair.
