    Default "Philips xtreme vision", a new bulb?

    Just saw an advert for a new Philips bulb, Philips xtreme vision. It is supposed to be 100% brighter than the ordinary bulb. The earlier, Philips Xtreme Power provided 90 % more light. Does any one have more information?

    There is even a youtube video (with sunflowers etc).
    Is this the last legal upgrade that we are going to see in Halogen bulbs, I wonder! Is it posiible to go further than 100% legally?

    they were first introduce in europw back in 2007, but here in the U.S. they are relatively new. I have a set on my truck andyes, they work great! they are about 80& brighter than stock halogens, do not have any blue tint, which makes them better in rain. and the total output is like that of an "european" beam. I highly recommend them.

    Noooo, they were first announced in Europe a couple of weeks ago. You are thinking of the previous Philips top-line bulb, the Xtreme Power.

    No, you are thinking of the Xtreme Power, not the new Xtreme Vision.

    and the total output is like that of an "european" beam.
    This does not make any sense and isn't even slightly true. There is no bulb you can install in a US-code headlamp that makes it into a European-code headlamp. It just doesn't work that way.

    Scheinwerfermann,

    I believe the previous poster was trying to say that these bulbs cause your headlights in America to have a European pattern, in the same way that many non-carcinogenic substances cause cancer if used in California.

    So this bulb is an improvement over Extreme Power?

    A little more light, a little less life.
