Best Silver Indicator bulbs?

Having just 'de-oranged' my lights I'm looking for a good silvered indicator bulb that shines a nice bright orange, unlike a lot of the ones on ebay.
I don't think Philips make an opposite pin silver vision bulb (which would be m first choice) so was wondering what you have used?

Agreed. Bought mine from xenonmods a few years ago and they're still going strong.

I purchased the silver bulbs off eBay four years ago and have not had an issue; am I missing something? Perhaps quality has changed since then.

XENONMODS are thieves!!

I had read a few posts saying people had bought from them without issues, but I should have searched further. Please learn from my mistake. I ordered a few pairs of bulbs from them 12 days ago and the only email I ever received was from PayPal confiming that they had my money.
Their website says you will get an email with a tracking number within 24 hours and that you will be contacted immediately if there are any problems with your order,,, they did not follow through on any of those promises and they have not responded to any of my emails.
I am working to get a refund through PayPal. Has anyone else that has been scammed by xenonmods ever got their money back?
