Real philips, good bulbs – Philips 12258 H1 Diamond Vision Premium Halogen Headlight Bulbs (5000K/2-Pack) Reviews

Pros:
These are definitively real philips bulbs,whiter light than regular bulbs, Really e branded wich means the cops cant fine you in europe for using these.
Cons:
Not that white, i expected 5000k, like my xenon extra lights, but its not. Might be just my reflector based headlight of a volvo 850...
Other:
found an old diamond bulb in a hella 3000 i had lying around, mounted this one in the right headlight and the dealextreme one in the left, they have the exact same light output.
Bottomline:
Good product wich really seems to work in projection based headlights, and the H7 version seems good but H1 is just slightly whiter than regular. will put up a picture comparing uncoated H3 bulb, diamond h1 bulbs and true 5000k xenon light.
