Question Silverstar ZXE

Just bought a set of the New Sylvania Silverstar ZXE light bulbs. Has anyone used these yet and what do you think?

I've never tried the newer silverstars so I can't speak for them. I have however tried the original silverstars in a 96 chevy pickup and I was very pleased with the light color and output. My suggestion would be to put them in and let us all know what you think

So..I put these in today and drove home tonight which is a 100 mile trek. I have been using Sylvania SilverStar Ultra for a couple of years because they are whiter than any bulb I have ever had. These New ZXE....Sorry didn't make it. They are better than stock but my opinion is my SilverStar Ultra is a whiter bulb.I guess I will continue to buy the Ultra.

Well...I must correct myself. Is it possible that the bulbs have gotten brighter after being used a little? They looked brighter so I took 2 photos one of the Ultra and one of the ZXE.
The ZXE is on the Left.

Know this is an old post but I would like to know if anyone else is using these? I find the Ultra is a clearer might be because of the picture.

The ZXE is Whiter, I took these pictures outside with my cell phone might have a little movement. I just bought 2 more sets on Ebay, got them for $29.99 each shipped.

I bought Wizard #893 lights from Summit Racing. They are almost the same color. They cost me $16 with free shipping. I bought them on Ebay, summit sells things on an ebay store.
