SilverStar? They are not reccomended by Daniel Stern Lighting.

For those who want the best possible performance from their headlamps and are more concerned with their ability to see rather than the appearance of their headlamps, the major bulb companies offer optimized bulbs WITHOUT the light-stealing blue coloration. Sylvania Xtravision (in the pink-and-black package), Osram Super and SilverStar(outside North America only!); Philips High Visibility (North America), Premium and Vision Plus (outside North America); Narva RangePower are the ones to look for.
Edit, posted the above before I saw your second post. SilverStar in North America do have a blue tint, but I do not know what they look like when illuminated, and daniel stern says they are overdriven, so they have a shorter life. Do give Daniel Stern a read though, they have great information about headlamps.
