Thread: Philips xtreme power...thumbs up!

    Default Philips xtreme power...thumbs up!

    Finally installed the Philips XP 9008 in headlights (replacing Silverstars) and 9006 in yellow Duplicolored fogs (replacing oem sylvanias). Don't find the low beams to really be much brighter (if at all) than the Silverstars, but the beam pattern is FAR superior. Silverstars had a decent beam and were a touch brighter than stock bulbs (despite blue tint), but the Philips bulbs have a very clear cutoff and the beam is more like a horizontal bar rather than two spots with light scattering to the sides.

    As for the fogs, didn't notice much difference in clear weather. But I did notice they have slightly decreased the yellow effect from the Duplicolored lenses, so I guess that means they must put out more light.

    Either way I am quite pleased with the bulbs, and just hope they last a reasonable amount of time...

    Agree with you regarding the sharp cut off of Philips bulb. They are more relaxing to the eye since the light is limited to the road and the sides and is very reflective. I have installed a Philips Extreme Vision H7 (an upgrade on the extreme power) and was totally blown away by the cut off and the brightness on the road. Incidently, I found a site with pictures where they compare many bulbs photographically. I think there are two pictures here, one is the usual coloured night shot and the other which is ? black and white shot for each bulb (Gurus correct me if I am wrong!). Interesting to see even if not very comparitive for the more scientifically inclined (because photos have their own limitations).

    Looked for the Xtreme vision, but don't think they're offered in an h13 as of yet. Will give them a try next time around if available. Hoping that won't be for a while...
