    This is the kind of stupid testing that comes from boredom, lol. I had one burnt out Silverstar and the Ultras were on sale so what they heck. Here are some comparisons for those who care. Ultra is on the left:

    Ultras are the dimmer headlight on the Left??



    How old is your other silverstar headlight bulb?? Over time bulbs may dim slightly, so it's not really a true comparison unless you have two brand new bulbs

    So which one is the Ultra in the picture of the front of your car. You say above the bulbs pic that the Ultra is one the left, but you don't say above the other picture. I am assuming the Ultra is the brighter one on the driver's side headlight?

    Left = Driver so I'm assuming it's the brighter one aka drivers side.

    Hahah, acquire. Nice. I was looking at those bulbs one day at Meijer I think, and there was some guy standing there packing them into his hoodie. I looked at him and he nodded, and I pointed at the 9007s, and he snagged them up. Ten minutes later, he gave them to me in the parking lot. Go figure, about a month later, they both burnt out. Karma, I suppose.
