heres a pic compariosn of both i did a while back:

edit: I just noticed you replied to that thread.. the OEM bulbs are great for pre-facelift, because the corners are tinted, and these bulbs glow brighter
Hmm..yep I guess you had already informed me about them months ago. I should have listened to you then. You should have posted the cost..that always gets my attention. LOL.
I see the ones I have are #..228 and the ones you had are #..227. I have a feeling the 227s are the ones with 180' offset pins, while the 228s are 150' offset pins.
