Sylvania's Silverstar Ultra headlight bulbs

Anybody use them? Thinking about replacing the factory bulbs since they aren't much use.

Ran a couple sets. They're ok. Sylvania has one above them. Silver star zxe. They look more like HID. Not an obnoxious blue or purple though.

Their web site says that the Ultras are brighter and further down the road and further to the sides than the ZXE's.

I've looked on line at several different fitment charts for a 2012 F-250 and they all give a different part number. However, the Silvania chart shows a part number of H13 (9008).

Is this what you guys are using?

Look at the PIAA 5k Bulbs. I got em in my headlights and my fogs and they are night and day over the factory. Plus they are more of a pure white.
