We’ll be comparing the Sylvania XtraVision’s to your original headlight bulbs to find out the real differences including brightness, whiteness, and cost, so you can make an informed decision about your replacement upgrade.
First, we’ll start with the brightness. The XtraVision’s came out at a meager 3% brighter over basic or stock bulbs, falling way behind the rest of the ‘better’ Sylvania bulbs. The Silverstar Ultra’s for example were 27% brighter over OEM. They will be about 8% whiter over original bulbs at 3320k. The Silverstar Ultra’s again for comparison will give you 16% whiter light, but of course come at a much higher cost. If you’re on a budget, these would be a nice small upgrade over stock at only around $15 on average at Amazon. They come in all of your popular sizes as well.
Check out our videos including the top 3 brightest and the top 3 whitest, whichever interests you most. Be safe out there, and until next time!
