Here's a comparison shot. If anybody wants it I can get another one with my fog lights on (standard halogen) for reference. Pic

J-Horch I don't see a blue or a white! I guess I'll wait and see tonight. I was pairing them with yellow fogs hoping they'd be a bit blueish

They are more of a blue than a white. But they are 'whiter' than stock halogen bulbs. If you still have your old bulbs do a side by side, that will help show the difference a little more.

Userdenied I know this an older thread, but as I read the whole thing because I was curious about others experience with these lights I figures others might as well.

I have been running ZXE bulbs in my wife's Cobalt for almost two years now. In that time she has been through two sets. Getting Sylvania to honor the warranty is no trouble at all so that is something. When the first bulb went out I just bought a second set and swap them out one at a time and when I get two bad ones I call and get replacements.

My father has also had these in his Fusion for about a year and had one blow on him already. So while they are great looking bulbs and easily an upgrade over most cars stock, in my experience they have a much shortened lifespan. :(

jcw122 Very cool! Personally I think you'd have to be on drugs to want 6000k bulbs....you lose any contrast, including when illuminating DEER. Looks like a nice alternative to HIDs, although I know HIDs can be warm/neutral temps as well.
