Another alternative, PIAA Extreme White (which I use).* The light is 100% white, no bluish tint.* The bulb is more expensive but I haven't replaced it in 2 years.

FYI, I kept hearing stories about Luminics/Sylvania burning out quick.

PIAAs are worth every cent you pay

Hey Buckeye, I read the other post and I take it there are actual differences between the Osram and Sylvanias? If so, then I'll go for Osram. I went to a lot of places today looking for them and no one seems to sell them (Pep Boys, Autozone, etc.). Where did you happen to purchase them? I think that Jax's PIAA suggestion might be good. I didn't realize it was only $60/pair. Every time I've ever seen PIAAs, they were ~$100/pair. Still interested in the Osrams though. Can anyone know where to get them? Thanks.

My Luminics hyperwhites are working fine without issues.

Hey Jax, are your xtreme whites the same as the xtreme whites plus? The plus are 4000K. I believe white white should be a little higher. Can you confirm? Thanks.

I think there's only 1 type of PIAA for H1 size. Click here That's what I bought.

There's an imported PIAA spark blue from Japan but I don't recommend you getting it. Too blue + almost $90/pair.

Jax, did you swap all the lights (low, high, integrated fogs) with the same bulb brand?

Hey Jax, check this:
http://www.autothing.com/catalog/piaa_xtre...ulbs_832262.htm
It only says Xtreme White as opposed to Xtreme White Plus and is 4150K @ 55w (see pic). Any idea if this is a bluer tint? Or do I have something incompatible with the 6?
