I don't have a before/after set of pics, but...
Shortly after replacing my low beams with the Nighbreakers I was parked next to my co-worker (both vehicles facing out) and we both unlocked our vehicles (both have the low beams light up in dark areas upon unlock) and the difference in the light 'color' was amazing. OEM halogen bulbs are more 'yellow' and the Nightbreakers were more white without the blue tint you see in the cheap 'blue' bulbs.
He drives a Ford F150, but halogen is halogen. His are also about 6 years old, so they probably look a bit more yellow than new bulbs, but still the difference was significant.
The Nightbreakers do have a blue tint, but it's outside the filament area on the glass capsule. The area around the filament is clear.
