Philips broke into the automotive LED market two years or so ago with the first real compatible halogen bulb replacement for fog lights.
If you are looking to upgrade your style, without buying a new car, replacing your exterior lighting with LEDs is a smart way to spend your money. The first LED retrofit bulb for halogen bulbs that’s from a reputable original-equipment automotive lighting supplier (the world’s number one supplier, in fact) and that actually works!
With a color temperature of up to 6000 Kelvin, the Philips X-tremeUltinon LED headlight based on automotive grade LUXEON ZES technology produces a bright white, daylight-like beam. These lights significantly improved lighting without blinding other drivers.
Get 200% brighter light for superior visibility
Driving in the dark is demanding, so you rely on your headlights. Forward and peripheral vision are both important to enhance your driving ability for a safer drive. With an intense bright beam, Philips X-treme Ultinon LED headlights for cars to improve your visibility by up to 200%. Once you experience this daylight–like effect, you’ll always prefer LED. The more you can see, the better you perform, the faster you react and the safer you are.
Upgrade your lights, upgrade your style
Fitted with SafeBeam technology, Philips LED headlights concentrate light where you need it. The uniform and accurate beam pattern are designed according to road safety regulations for halogen headlights.
Durable headlights that can last as long as your car
You want bright and stylish headlights. But you don’t want to keep replacing failed lamps. That’s a major weakness of conventional headlights; the more powerful the light, the shorter its lifespan. At a higher light intensity level, LEDs last much longer, and Philips X-tremeUltinon LED products to show superior durability. Due to features such as AirFlux and AirCool heat management systems, they last up to 12 years. With most cars replaced or upgraded within that time, your stylish new headlights should last you the lifetime of your car.
Philips X-tremeUltinon Tested on 2016 Toyota Tundra Review
I had to make the wiring hole in the back of the headlight housing a little bigger to fit the plug through, but after that everything fit fine. The drivers (ballasts?) are sitting outside the headlight housing but that’s okay since they are waterproof.
As far as the actual light output goes, they are just about the same as the stock halogens, save for maybe a little bit brighter and a much nicer color. I won’t say I can see farther at night, but I can see better and I feel like others can see me better as well.
These haven’t caused any problems with glare. The cutoff in my halogen housing is still really great, as these bulbs are designed to replicate a halogen cutoff.
All in all, this is a great product that I would totally buy again, and I’ll be recommending it to all my friends.
However, it’s recommended that you get your new Philips LED headlights installed by specialist mechanics – they will make sure you’re ready to go. While these headlights are compatible with a wide range of existing car models, not all car types are supported.
