Well, mine were still Sylvania or whatever they are, two to a card,
but they had the correct 2-digit and 3-digit part# that was listed in
the owner's manual. They were way down near the floor and are part of
their "european" selection. I took out a 1057 or some such and put in
a 67 or something like that.m I think their "european" stuff is made
in Europe somewhere. It costs a bit more too.
