    For whoever is sick of their yellowish stock headlight bulbs and want brighter, whiter light but don't want to go the HID or RetroFit route...

    Here's some comparison photos of a couple Philips bulbs. I'm glad I switched to the CrystalVision Ultra's. You can tell that they look much clear and white and are just as bright, maybe a little brighter. I had the X-treme's for around a week. I liked em compared to the stock bulbs, very bright and a little whiter but still had that hint of yellow. Basically exchanged em on Amazon for the CrystalVision's in hopes that they would be whiter and more clear. They are :D

    Though I cannot vouch for the how much life I will get out of these. Hopefully, I'm lucky and will have them for a while. If not, they only costed me about $25 or so from Amazon ;) I will however post updates on the lifespan I get with these in the future.


    ***I know there are other routes, but I'm sharing mine :cool:
