Well this topic has been beaten to death, but here's some daylight evidence of Philips Silvervisions' superiority over the competition.

I had to file down one nub on the Silver Vision bulb to make it fit. The Platinum Vision 2.0's didn't need to be filed down.

I just got them and installed my rears only since they're the easiest (it's freakin cold outside in NJ!). I think the results would be similar for the front corners.

I ordered them from www.powerbulbs.com

It's around $43.00 for a set of four and they throw in Bluevision sidemarker bulbs (I think they light up xenon white kinda). Shipping was free too I think.

I'm still using the Platinum Vision 2.0's for the sides since they provide sufficient light. I'm debating whether or not to use the bluevisions I got with my Silverivision order. I'm not sure about the legality of them in my state; need to ask my police officer friend.

Sweet, I just ordered a set of Silvervisions on Sunday night too, paid the same price, and I'm getting the same set. I'm glad to see that they do kick ass like everyone else said, and I'm happy I ordered them. :thumbup:

Sidemarkers are the indicator lights on the sides of the car just in front of the driver and passenger door. If you go to the website you'll see the offer at the top of the page.

The platinumvisions aren't that bright but i'm still quite satisfied with them. As long as i don't have that egg yolk look anymore and the cop can see that my bulbs flash orange then i am happy.

what kind of silvervisions did you get? Mine, along with a good handful of people from this forum had them go right in. 1156/PY21W fit our cars perfectly. Are the new sedan's bulb number different then the previous cars?????

My front corner bulbs are different than my rear... is this how it's supposed to be?

I got the PY21W's; they went right in to my front corners, but I had to file them for the rears.

I wonder if the Sedans are different than the coupes. It seems that the coupes are having no fitment issues but the sedans are. Can anybody verify this? Mine fit perfectly (Coupe).

As far as sidemarkers, I've got the BlueVisions in now but you can see they are blue. They blink VERY bright white light. You can also just buy clear bulbs (I've got those too). Makes it look VERY clean but the light is not as white as the BlueVisions.
