I've got silverstars in both my headlights and fogs, they're pretty good i guess, unless you're planning to see a mile ahead of you then you're out of luck with silverstars. Others have said PIAA Superwhites or something are better, but I've gone up a few mountain roads at night (no street lights) and I can see just fine. A bit on the pricey side though, I got all 4 for about 75 with resale discount.
I have never heard of OSRAM Silverstars. A link would help. I say make sure you get Sylvania Silverstars. That is what I have -- very good for regular bulbs. I would recommend that you get a set of 9006s and a set of 9005s. I am not certain that the 9006s will fit the low beams; they might, but I don't want to mess things up for you.
Oh you must have euro spec headlights. If they are glass and not plastic. In that case you may want to look and see exactly which bulb you will need. I know that a EURO elipsiod takes an H1 bulb. At least mine do. Also I put about a $150 bucks worth of PIAA high and low bulbs lights in my car, and 1 bulb has already blown up. SO.... I would recommend just putting in sylvania silverstars. The look is the same and they are about half the price.

I love PIAA and think that they are the brightest next to HID. The only problem is that they do sometime blow. There is another side to this though, being that PIAA stands behind their product and offers a one year warrenty and they are not stingy on that either. They will still give the replacements if you had them for 13 or 14 months. Also be careful in what you buy. I tried to go the cheap route before and the blue and higher temp bulbs were actually worse than stock. I bought my PIAA bulbs from a retailer for $65 which is a descent price. I also did an upgrade to angel eyes w/ the glass lenses. Personally I think that a bright lighting system that is aimed correctly is worth every penny when the diffenrece of seeing something a couple of seconds sooner. Trust me I almost hit a fricken horse running down the middle of the road when it was pitch black out. I feel that the this combo saved me that night!
