nice but not xenon – Philips 12258 H1 Diamond Vision Premium Halogen Headlight Bulbs (5000K/2-Pack) Reviews

Came as advertised correct voltage and watt rating stated. They look like they are great build quality. The light emitted is whiter than the standard bulbs in my subaru.
not even close to the light you will get out of a xenon kit. the white light is nice and seems to be a bit brighter than the standard bulb but not by a noticible amount. these lights look whiter than the standard bulb but they do not mimick the xenon look you would get from a good xenon kit.
look good, I want to see how long they will run for next. I was worried when i opened the package that the lights would be too blue. thankfully the light they emitted was not blue once installed.
If you want the xenon look and can take the risk of a fire go for a HID kit. if you want to keep the current setup but have a slightly cleaner white look to your lights get these.
