A big for Daniel Stern Lighting. http://www.danielsternlighting.com/ I just received a pair of Narva H1 48334 Rangepower 50 (Osram Silverstar equivalent) for low beams and Toshiba 9011 HIR-1 for high beam. Both are outstanding bulbs, especially the 9011.
The 55W Narvas are noticeably brighter and whiter with no blue to tint to merely fool you into thinking they are brighter. They really are. I am not saying they are STi HID bright, but are surely brighter than the Subaru OEM German made Phillips H1 12258LL. At $13.50 each they are way cheaper than an HID conversion.
The 65W Toshiba 9011 have an infrared coating on the inside of the halogen bulb to heat up the filament and burn brighter. Quack posted this about these bulbs a while back: 9005 vs 9011 (HIR) pics These are amazing bulbs! They are almost too bright at times as they light up oncoming reflective roads signs very well. To use a 9011 in place of a 9005, there is a small bit of filing of the one tab on the bulb’s base needed to get these to fit in an HB3 base – it is easy.
Daniel was great to deal with over the phone. In the market for bulbs? Give him a call.
