Default Where do you guys buy your OSRAM Silverstars?

Hey guys,
I am looking to upgrade my lighting a bit. Where do you guys buy the OSRAM bulbs? I am looking for a decent place that will send me the right bulbs.

He may be a bit hard to get a hold of sometimes, but you will get the right stuff and he will answer any questions you have.
You may also be able to find them on Ebay and elsewhere online, but you'd be dealing with unknown vendors at your own risk.

Is there a difference between the OSRAMs and the Silvania version? I thought that OSRAM is the European division of Sylvania. Wouldn't the bulbs be the same?

I am pretty sure they are not the same. The bulbs even look different. I hear all good things about the OSRAM bulbs and mixed results about the Sylvania ones. I could just buy PIAA but before I go there, I'd like to see if I can get the OSRAMs.

No, they are not the same. Osram is the parent company of Sylvania. The Silverstars sold in the US are for the American market only and are blue-coated. The Osram Silverstars are only sold in Europe and do not have the blue coating.

When I email Daniel he usually replies so fast I think I'm IMing him. I've bought 2 sets of lights from him, for my Mazda3 and my WRX.
