    Please note that this Instant Rebate offer is offered by the distributors and HID Concept cannot apply this offer to any orders placed prior to this promotional term.

    Philips X-tremeVision +50% series HID bulbs provide up to +50% more brightness and whiter color temperature rated at 5000K (initial color rated at 4800K).
    On top of our everyday low price, this INSTANT REBATE would make this deal even more special.
    If you've been looking to replace your stock/no-brand name D2S, D2R, D1S, or D3S bulbs to reliable Philips bulbs that are brighter and whiter, it's the time to grab the deal!

    Visit us at hidconcept.com.

    FYI, see below comparison photos to see how it looks different from the stock 4300K (from our previous test)
    (First comparison photos were taken from our facility. The other two actual road comparison photos were taken by AUDIZINE members. Many thanks to kappax12 and studioRS!)
    There were rumors that X-tremeVision bulb gets whiter and brighter after 200 hrs of use.
    To find out if it's a rumor or truth, we ran a test by having a X-tremeVision bulb stay lit for 9 days (9 days x 24 hrs = 216 hrs).


    Conclusion: It's not a rumor anymore. It has been confirmed. X-tremeVision bulb gives whiter and brighter light compared to the stock 4300K bulb from the beginning and it gets even better as it goes through break-in process.
    We're very satisfied with the result after 216 hrs of use.

    We took a few comparison photos showing stock Philips 4300K D2S(lower), new Philips X-tremeVision D2S (middle), and color-shifted Philips X-tremeVision D2S w/220 hrs use (upper) to show you the difference in lighting output and color.
    The photos have not been photoshopped and untouched except for our log being added.

    Although we tried to take good photos, it is not easy to take photo of lighting.
    The result is that stock 4300K is noticeably yellower and dimmer than X-tremeVision bulb and the color-shifted X-tremeVision bulb is much whiter with crisp white.

Also HIDConcept prices can't be beat and it's an authentic bulb, no risk of knockoffs on ebay.

    Excellent bulbs!

    I know those pictures are horrible, but its the best I could do. They don't do these bulbs justice. It's great being able to see again at night. I can't even tell a difference when i turn on my fogs now, when before my fogs were brighter than my having my brights on. These bulbs are brighter then they look in the pictures. I like the color too. They're a nice crisp white. Would definitely recommend these.

    Couple of repeatedly asked questions came across and I wanted to post answers.
    1. How do Philips XV compare to Osram CBI?
    A: Philips XV (X-tremeVision) gives 5000K color (initial start at 4800K) with up to 50% more brightness.
    Osram CBI (Cool Blue Intense) gives 5500K color (5000K for D3S/D4S) with up to 20% more brightness.
    Conclusion: For D3S, Philips XV wins for combination of color and more brightness. For D2S/D1S, ask yourself what is more important for you; color or brightness.

    2. Do you have matching lights for fogs?
    A: We have several options.
    -> a. M'Autolite Fanless LED's: They give 5500K by using Philips LMZ chips. The color is not 100% match to XV since they use different technologies; LED vs. HID but they are close match after break-in period applies on XV HID bulbs.
    -> b. We have Blesk HID conversion kit with rebased Philips XV bulbs to fit on H7, H11, 9006, etc...
    We extracted bulb capsule from 85122XV and 85126XV and rebased them for halogen bulb base.
    If your budget is flexible, this would be the best HID kit you will find with the superior quality.
    (No one has XV rebased bulbs as far as I know)
    -> c. Blesk 5000K HID kit.
    Blesk HID kit has been great for many AZ members. The color tone matches closely to Philips XV bulbs.

    If you have other questions, feel free to ask.
    Thanks!
