They are Osrams HIDs. They were suppose to be a bit bluer/brighter than my original HID bulbs so I thought it be a cool replacement.. And no I did not authenticate them. That was one of my concerns when I bought them(fakes). However the bulbs arrived in the little paper boxes. "Real" Osrams have plastic casing packaging and authenticating.
All that said, these fake bulbs are quite impressive for being faked lol. But dark spots seem to develop on the bulbs after some usage. At first I thought it was my front covers but its definitely the bulb.
Ahh, I see, so you got fake bulbs which sounds about right given your observations of the beam and poor performance.
When you said...
I tried a set of brighter Osram HID bulbs over my stock HID bulbs and I wouln't recommend it.
...I thought you were referring to genuine Osram bulbs and I was like, huh? why? Had you actually purchased legitimate Osram performance bulbs from HERE, you might be singing a different tune.😃
