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

Pros:
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.
Cons:
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.
Other:
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.
Bottomline:
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.
