I heard a rumor that Philips bulbs are now also made in China. Any turth to this, I tried searching the net but didn't find anything concrete. Both Philips and Osram outsource the manufacture of some of their light bulbs to China, though Philips imports many more than its rivals - so much so that its right to be counted a European light bulb producer has been challenged. http://www.iht.com/articles/2007/07/...iness/bulb.php
I don't know if that link references auto bulbs also, or not. Philips has been heavly touted here and other places because it's made in Europe. If in fact they are made in China does that lower their rep? Or does that help validate HID kit's made in China?!? Just looking for more intel.
