I'm not sure what u're getting at???? The idea of silvervisions is that they don't show orange when not lit. Are u comparing silversvisions to DIY?

It's comparing the brightness when on which is probably the biggest factor. Any company can simply color a bulb silver, light output is what varies.

correct. i know i've been preaching about how close to stock the silvervisions are, but it seems that people would rather pay the same amount or more for someone else to paint orange bulbs for them. they look nothing like stock or silvervisions and this just proves my point and many others that silvervisions are the best. if your tight on cash or don't feel like spending the money on bulbs, then i can understand a DIY. but i can't understand paying someone else to do it. if anyone wants silver bulbs, send me $40 and i'll send you all six bulbs painted :D j/k

I'm assuming he means a stock amber bulb. To prove that the coating on the silvervisions don't negatively impact the light output in comparison to what it would look like stock.

I am also a big fan of the Silvervisions. It's not an excessive price for such a superior product in comparison to other "competitive" brands.

I like them so much my OCD personality stocks them every chance I get in case a bulb goes out :tsk:

You are definetely the pioneer in the silvervision debate streetrix. By the way, was I right? Stock = left? It was a shot in the dark but I am curious...
