Philips 9003VPB2 VisionPlus Upgrade Headlight Bulb, Pack of 2
- This makes a significant difference to your safety and comfort on the road.
- Better visibility provides drivers with a faster reaction time thanks to an earlier recognition of obstacles and traffic signs.
- All Philips Automotive Lighting products incorporate the leading edge lighting technology and original equipment quality that have made us the first choice of car manufacturers around the world.
- Choosing original equipment bulbs reduces the chance of early failure thanks to their higher quality standards.
- When changing a headlight bulb, it’s best to change in pairs to ensure a symmetric light beam from both bulbs on the road.
- In addition, it’s simply more efficient to change both headlight bulbs while your car is in for service, rather than only replace the failed one.
- Because we understand that safer driving is driving that offers you a clearer view of the road.
- And when you see more, you have more time to react to hazards.
- Safer vehicles with improved lighting really do make a difference.
- I used to buy Sylvania Silverstars because of the ice-blue tint that mimicks the HID look.
- After about 5 pairs in 4 months, I realized how horrible they are and upon further research that the coating actually reduces the brightness.
- Found a lot of reviews on car forums talking about the brand Osram and how they make the real Silverstars.
- Out of all of them, Philips is the easiest to get a hold of in the US which lead me to purchase them here.
- They are the brightest legal bulbs you can purchase and all those “ice blue” “extreme white” bulbs are junk, they are estimated to product about 1350 Lumens and a terrible lifespan.
- I switched from a standard stock bulb to these so I was able to notice a good change in brightness, but i’m sure if varies with each car and the bulb they are replacing.
- So to sum it up, don’t expect HID grade brightness, just expect a very good quality bulb that will give you the best from a halogen bulb.
- The installation process for the Legacy is insane and takes a while because you have to get to the bulb through the wheel well and a small hole.
- The passenger side low beam was the bulb that died so I went ahead and replaced both bulbs in a matter of about 45 minutes.
- There’s a noticeable whiter color difference with the new bulbs compared to the OEM but they are only slightly brighter than OEM.
- Hopefully these last as long as the OEM one’s did, at least 75k miles or so.
- HECK YEAH, it’s definitely brighter, no doubt about that!
- The factory bulbs are decent, but these are most assuredly brighter.
- I’ve used Philips bulbs in all of my cars, and have always been impressed with the quality.
- While these are newly installed, I have no fear of them lasting a long time.
- So far so good, but they’re definitely in the 3400k range – significantly more yellow than my 6000k LEDs.
- Not really a criticism since yellow light is supposed to be easier on your eyes and high beans are generally used on dark challenging roads.
- I took them for a spin around the block but no maintain driving yet.
- Photo shows the colour compared to my LEDs and highbeams with lowbeams compared to lowbeams only.
- These are advertised as being 60% brighter but still be within legal limits.
- The attached picture shows they are brighter/whiter in color than the original (new bulb on left).
- If I had to guess they are roughly 40% brighter although the picture does not do it justice.
- Since each auto has different optics the end result can be different, so for the record these were installed in a 2011 Volvo XC60.
- Overall I am satisfied with the results and will follow-up if they need replaced.
- Note: If you have the same model vehicle and are considering LED, the bulb is behind a cover on the back of the head light assembly with minimal clearance.
- So trying to fit a longer bulb would not work without modifying the cover and risking a bad seal.
- Installed on a 2005 Nissan Titan
CON: Installed in Sep 2017 but am concerned about reviews indicating short longevity.
- Reviews indicate these lights may last less than 2 years!?
- I kept my one remaining 12-yr old light as a spare for when one of these new bulbs burn out so I don’t have to buy a new pair right away.
- My original lights were Phillips “made in Germany” and these are also made in Germany.
- WARNING: Part of the longevity problem my be with the installation process.
- Natural body oils on the bulbs may contribute to reduced longevity.
- I handled the bulbs (from package to installation) using a clean paper towel.
- Although my actual problem lay with the socket having burned out, i decided to just install the new lights instead of returning them.
- The lights are much better than the prior ones we had and am happy with the purchase.
