    Gen1 Philips X-tremeVision +50% series HID bulbs provided up to +50% more brightness and whiter color temperature rated at 5000K (initial color rated at 4800K).
    The ALL-NEW PHILIPS X-tremeVision +150% gives the same 4800K at start-up but amazingly, it gives up to 150% more brightness than stock.
    (During our actual testing process, we were able to confirm its even greater lighting output on XV Gen2 bulbs but 150% seems to be over-emphasized but it's estimated to be about 70-90% increase, which is still a big improvement over stock.

    If you've been looking to replace your stock/no-brand name D2S, 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.

    **** Below comparison photos and information were captured by true customers who used XV gen1 HID bulbs.
    XV Gen2 gives the same lighting color but with even more brightness rated at up to 150% more.

    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.
    Top: OEM bulb 4yrs old
    Bottom: Philips XV, 2hrs run time
    Settings: ISO100, f/2.8, 0.5", 16mm, 4050k WB

    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.

    We received many repeated questions and I wanted to share it with you all.
    People asked if they should go with Philips XV gen2 bulbs or Philips White Vision Gen2 bulbs.
    The answer is that it depends on what is more important to you.
    Here are some highlights that would help you decide.

    Brightness: XV Gen2 gives up to 150% more brightness and WhiteVision Gen2 gives up to 120% more brightness.
    Color: XV Gen2 gives 4800K out of box and color shifts to become whiter over usage. WhiteVision Gen2 gives 5000K color out of box and color shifts from 5000K white.
    Summary: If you want the maximum light output and color is not the #1 priority, go with XV Gen2 because its 4800K color is already whiter than the stock and will only get better.
    If you want even slight better color from the beginning (200K difference), White Vision Gen2 would be a good option regardless because it still gives up to 120% more brightness than stock according to Philips. See what's more important to you; 200K whiter color to trade off with 30% more brightness.
