The thing is...the tint allows certain frequencies to pass through...all the yellow and crap don't. THe output light is gives us the impression of it being brighter, when it's really not necessarily true. It's really merely for looks...everyone likes that look...including me.RLsChMiDt said:Sorry I skimmed this over, but I am in physics this year. So what you're saying is that buying a new bulb is worthless? I understand what a filter is, and I understand that we can only see certain frequencies of light...but say I bought a Silverstar...would I notice an improvement?

Got this out of my manual, hope it helps.
Amongst all the physics and engineering, I'm going to throw in some neuro-physiology. While you are conciously focusing on the distance, straining to see as far as you can in the dark, your brain is unconciously concentrating on the area with the brightest light levels. So if you create a bright area just a few feet in front of the car (drive with the fogs on) you are actually reducing your ability to see into the distance. Ever noticed how you're sometimes distracted by something on the road surface in that bright area, even though you're not looking anywhere near it? Turn them off and it may look darker out there, but your ability to see things will be improved.robertln said:it's hard to see any difference, especially when you're like me and use fog lights all the time.
