Hi Everyone

 

Recently I bought the stealth bulbs for the 996 to test the look and function of these bulbs and compare it with the OEM bulbs. This review is based on the Porsche Carrera 996 MK1 and we will be comparing four main points (Quality, look, function and price).

 

1- Quality. Starting with the packing, these bulbs are packed and presented well. However, the 194 bulbs are packed with the same mold used for the 7507 and 7506 bulbs.

And here is the stealth bulb along with the OEM blub:

2- Look. When used for the side and rear turn signals the stealth bulbs does remove the orange hint in the turn signal housing. However, for the front turn signals there is no use because the internal lenses inside the headlight is orange and the OEM bulb is clear.

3- Function. When operating the turn signals the stealth bulbs will illuminate less than the OEM bulbs as shown here in the following pictures:

4- Price. The price difference between the stealth bulbs and the OEM bulbs are as follows:

OEM 194 bulb = $4.5

Stealth bulb = $28.99

Difference = $24.49 = 84%

 

OEM 7507 bulb = $4.5

Stealth bulb = $29

Difference = $24.5 = 84%

 

OEM 7506 bulb = $9.25

Stealth bulb = $29

Difference = $19.75 = 68%

 

In conclusion, the quality and the look of the stealth bulbs are good and does enhance the look of the rear and side light housing by eliminating the orange hint. However, the function and price are in the favor of OEM bulbs.

Stealth bulb = $28.99

Difference = $24.49 = 544% MORE!!

 

OEM 7507 bulb = $4.5

Stealth bulb = $29

Difference = $24.5 = 544% MORE!!

 

OEM 7506 bulb = $9.25

Stealth bulb = $29

Difference = $19.75 = 213.5% MORE!!!
