They certainly don't put out much light. There was a set on my SVT when I bought it and one night's drive had me at the parts store to buy new CLEAR bulbs. They blues ones suck. They might look good but they don't work well doing what they are really for,... lighting the road in front of you.

uh, not sure if they'll take it back once it's opened. halogens are finicky bastards. if you touch the lens, for example, this greatly shortens the lifespan of the bulb. most part stores i know won't take 'em back after they're opened.

i've sold too many CBs to customers and have them complain later that they're not that bright and not that blue. the only thing i ever have to tell them is that the ones that look blue from the driver perspective are most likely illegal. they'll have a slight blue tint from oncoming traffic's perspective, but it's not gonna be as blue as some of those bulbs you can find on ebay (but most of those aren't legal). if i were you, i'd get some silverstars. they're really bright, but don't create a real harsh light. they'll look pure white compared to your stockers. only disadvantage (and even sylvania will tell you this), is that they don't last as long. i got about a year out of mine before i blew one. i didn't wanna throw down the cash to by a whole new set (never replace just one. the other one'll blow within a week anyway), so i went with some cheapo blue ebay lights that'll probably fry my harnesses, but i like the look.

if you're going to get aftermarket bulbs, make sure they are good ones. cheap ones like on ebay put out too much power and burn the housings and wiring. i would highly suggest investing in a pair of piaa bulbs. i got mine for about 80 bucks. a little expensive, but they are very bright, and use the same watage as stock, so theres no worries.

i have street glow optix bulbs, really blue, but look white from the drivers seat. we sell them at best buy. they're the same wattage as stock so there's no wire frying.
