Philips Xtreme Bulbs - Are They Too Bright?

I installed the Philips Xtreme bulbs a few weeks ago and ever since then, oncoming traffic flashes their high beams at me. It doesn't bother me, their high beams don't affect my sight at all, but it is annoying to have them flash their high beams. So are these bulbs really that bright? Anyone else gets high beamed?

Two screws/bolt/things on each headlight. One directly behind the bulb (almost) and the other on the fender side of the headlights. I dont remember which one controls up/down and right/left. A quick google search would help.

Aim them up a little more, then add four 9" driving lights converted to 8K HID.


Then come back and report to us what happens.

Burnt out a sss ultra on the way to work this morning. Just scored a set of these Philips X-treme H7s for my projectors off ebay for 19.99 shipped.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/400221566727...84.m1497.l2649

Another guy had a set for 26.99. Hoping these last longer than the silverstar ultras.....and yes, re-aiming is always necessary when changing bulbs. Even the same brand will not point the same. Adjust.

These don't require anything else to operate, right?

Where is a good place to purchase a pair for my 99?
