silverstars are better. it has the best light output for halogens but it's not as white as the kobe's. the whiter the bulb the lesser the light output.

FYI, beam pattern can not be adjusted on headlights, its flashlight where you can change focus point by moving relfector.

you probably wanted to say that he need to realign headlights. but that isn't going to help in case of bad pattern.
i have HID and light distribution isn't very good(hot spots) and without modification to headlights beam pattern can not be changed.
