silverstars dont add to preformence lighting wise.... there was research and a long write up somewhere. i am sure someone has the link/article.

they make your lights look brighter or some shit, but dont add to range, ect..

ellipoids will definatley help visibility at night, even without hid, the european projectors emit way more light than the horrible NA spec headlights. they also look way better during the day as well so its a double

Yes, yes and yes.

I have ellipsoids, and they are infinitely better than the NA oem headlights. It's truely amazing. I wanted the cool DDE's, but the reason for the upgrade was to improve my night vision. I'm very happy.

I have added Silverstars (after being disapppointed by Hella and PIAA bulbs).

And they do make the Silverstars in an H1, that's what I have.

Yep, definetely. Ellipsoids will add a LOT of light to the road. That's why they aren't legal for US driving ; )
