  • New Philips Xenon X-tremeVision

    Seems like Philips released some new xenon bulbs, code is 85122XVS1.
    I think this bulbs are a response to Osram Cool Blue Intense.

    the page: http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/c...?ctn=85122XVS1

    I bought them today, will install it tomorrow and I will post a review. I also happen to have the osram cbi and the silverstar. I hope the light on this philips bulbs will be uniform unlike the cbi and not yellow like the silverstar.

      Well yes I did saw them on Philips website 4 months ago but I could not find any stock. I bought instead some OEM Mercedes bulbs ( I know oem should be the same as philips 85122 or 85122+ but trust me they are not the same )
      I also had the osram cbi which yes, they are a little bit white however the light was not uniform, at least not with s500 oem setup.
      Also have some pair of silverstar however I uninstalled them quick as they were too yellow. Way too yellow for a xenon.

      I am giving this philips a chance but different setup ( an e46 330i ) can't wait to install them
      It's not a lie if you believe it.

          O got a pair few days ago, testet them in my RX350BX and compared to CBI

          as it looks from the first impression looking at the wall shot they are brighter than the cbis, but i need to make more testing and more pics but here it is:

              Yeah they are amazing, i just went outside ant took some pics. I cant belive that there is a bulb now whiter (a bit) and brighter than the CBI

              I will maybe get 2-3 pairs of them, and if i do i will sell here some for sure

                        We can buy them from europe and ship them to us if there is a group buy I think

                              Well atm they seem expensive 118 USD for one bulb... Guess we have to wait for the prices to go down.
                              I know in germany they are 10 USD cheaper but I live in Romania and to ship them from .de to .ro will cost more etc so is the same thing.
