There are 3 types of SilverStar bulbs; the original SilverStar, the SilverStar Ultra and the SilverStar ZXE. Same for GE Nighthawk; the original Nighthawk, the Nighthawk platinum and the Nighthawk Sports. All these bulbs have a shorter lifespan than the OEM bulbs but they produce a whiter light. The original bulbs from Sylvania and GE have a longer lifespan than the more recent, whiter and bluish ones. There are cheap Korean bulbs out there for about half the price...
Personally I don't care about the look, I just want a safe driving experience at night without blinding incoming drivers; I keep the OEM bulbs as spares in the cargo area!
2012 Sport V6 Classic Silver no option
1999 Lexus RX300 Pearl White base gone

Others too many to mention!
