Avoid CoolBlues, they are just regular halogen with blue tint added so they actually produce less light, and they look stupid. How many Hyundais do you see running around with them? Nuff said.
I'm going to have to disagree with you on the cool blues producing less light, they actually produce a whiter light because of blue coating. same deal with HID they tend to have a more blue color temperature. I've been running different types of blue coated bulbs for the last 4 years and they make a hell of a difference. last 2years i've been running 90/100w blues in my car. i can tell you from first hand experience that these produce more/better light than a silverstar.

with a 55/65w it'll be the same brightness as a regular 55/65, the difference is the color temperature. by adding the blue tint, you get a whiter light rather than a dull "yellow" light. i've run with piaa super plasmas which use blue glass and draw 55/65w and those made a great improvement over clear glass 55/65w. however, if you use bulbs with a more purple tint you run an even higher color temp, but actually wind up with less lumens. the piaa super plasma gt's made this mistake of using purple glass for the low beam which made it seem more dim than having the blue low beam. with HID you have to be carefull how high of a color temp you choose because the higher you go the less usefull the light it produces is.
