    OEM FTW

    Reason why you only chose Morimoto and not other heavy hitters like CNLight and UPS as well? I don't see intensity changing much between the aftermarkets, but color temps might be closer.

      Yeah you can see the green tint to the XB bulbs. Not so much on the 4500k Morimoto's though.

            Nice comparo Ceaser.
            If m not wrong these test are done at 35w so it would be interesting to see color, intensity at 50-55w(esply with dlt f5).

            Also add yeaky to that list. AFAI heard cn used to make bulb and now yeaky makes xb bulbs.

            Max in 6500k and decreases with k so least in 4500k. Even at 55w too.Ordered yeaky 6500k to use at 50w Hope its not present in yeaky 6500k as yeaky only makes xb bulbs now.

                    Its pretty obvious that the OEM bulbs totally destroy the aftermarket bulbs in brightness and intensity in all the different combinations posted above, without even having a lux readout. For those who are skeptical though I took the first image labeled "Morimoto XB 4500K vs. Philips D2S 85122" and lowered the image brightness and increased the contrast in Photoshop to make the hotspot stand out a lot more than in the original images. You can judge for yourself which one is the better bulb.

                        I think it is just a problem of alignment of the XB bulbs. Shimming will do the trick.

                          You could lower the hotspot and expose more but your cutoff will be all jacked up. Just take a look at the lux readings. you can see how much brighter they are. We did them in high beam mode specifically to see how bright the bulbs were.

                              I'm kind of surprised to see the Philips CBI and XV hitting higher lux than the NBU. Were these single readings or an average of several readings? 40 lux isn't a lot but still surprising, I'd expect them to be much closer. I wonder if Philips is playing with geometry in the capsule to get higher focus and a more intense hitspot.
