These bulbs are brighter than standard bulbs because they produce a white light unlike the standard Honda Stanley bulbs. There is no stated color but I would think they are near the same 4,200 as the Silverstar. The Honda low beam lens provides a smooth beam pattern without any dim areas but the 14 volt output of the alternator produced a yellow light with the standard Honda "Stanley" bulbs. These Honda Stanley bulbs are top notch in brightness drawing the correct amperage to cause a correct stated wattage output and usually are brighter than standard bulbs found in other cars so I am not faulting them. Both draw the correct amps to equal the stated wattage unlike other bulbs. These Hella bulbs with a light blue tint painted a white even pattern on the road as nice as the Silverstars that I have in another car and possibly brighter but I have not compared the two yet. After cleaning them with an alcohol wipe, I bench tested them on a power supply and the wattage was 55 Watts or slightly higher as stated at 14 volts. Always clean them with an alcohol wipe and wear clean cotton gloves or your finger prints on the quartz bulb will overheat the touched area and reduce the life to a few hours instead of many years. This is the reason so many people complain about short bulb life and the high expense of some of these bulbs. At this sale price they cost much less than Silverstar, even with the shipping charge so this is a major winner. Thank you Tire Rack!

These bulbs are definetly brighter than standard bulbs without blinding oncoming traffic (I think). I like that they provide a solid and consistent beam pattern without any dim areas in them; best at that from the various bulbs I've tried. I would have liked if they lit up a little farther down the road (comparing them to my last set of bulbs) but it isn't a deal breaker. I've had Silver Stars in the past and these are better. I hope they last longer than those did too.
