Default 9145 vs 9145ST Fog Lamp

The first picture shows the stock 9145 fog lamps.
The second picture shows a 9145ST on the passenger side, and the stock 9145 on the driver side.
The third picture shows both 9145ST fog lamps.

Either looking at them or in the pictures, I can't tell one bit of difference!!!

I take my next night road trip on the 16th, and I'll subjectively evaluate if I can tell any difference behind the wheel.

Does anyone else have any opinions on whether the ST is a better fog lamp and worth the premium price?

Hi buddy,

It looks the same to me in the three pictures, I can´t really see any difference.

In my experience I use to drive a Chrysler Sebring with fog lights, when I switched to silverstars they were good in the night but wasn´t a big difference, why don´t you take some pictures inside the truck of how they light up the road

Regards!

i thought the 9145ST simply just had a 90 deg angle,opposed to straight.i bought lows and fogs from ebay for 12.00 a pair.def worth the money and the light is a big difference.even during the day they look white,night bluish/white,hope this helps.btw idont see a difference in your photos either

If you really want to see a difference in light, switch the fogs out to HID's!

The 9145 base will be the same as the 9145ST bulb base. Not sure what the "ST" designates but the "9145" is the bulb style and base identifier.

That's weird that fuzicali's lights look like LEDs or HIDs and Ramona's like regular bulb. They both say they have the same bulbs?

I really didn't notice any difference driving at night between the standard Sylvania 9145 and the 9145ST, which has a higher color temp (and price). I was hoping to buy the Ultra, but they don't offer it on the 9145 bulb. I am sure there are other options, but until my warranty is up, I'm not using anything other than what is spec'ed.
