I equipped these before i cleared up my yellowed headlights. Even with the yellowing they shined toward the whiter end of the color spectrum. After i restored my headlights these things look amazing.It’s been about 6 months and my car has day time running lights, so these are on constantly, no issues yet.
Never owned the bulbs before, nor did i read reviews before purchasing. Wanted to provide everyone with the absolute facts about this bulb. First off – the product states pack of 1 in the title which is correct, but the description states twin pack. Just to eliminate confusion there. Next – description states “for the look of hid lighting”. They are not even close to slightly simulating hid. Absolutely irresponsible to even mention such a thing in the description. Next – description states “extreme blue/white light”. See my further review below. Lastly – description states “color temp. Of up to 4,000 kelvin” – nowhere near 4k, but they technically they can get away with saying this because they state “up to”, which means it could be anything “up to” 4k.Now all that said here is what i have.
I’d say they are as good as my sylvania silverstars in my other car. Not sure how they compare to the silverstar sxs, but these are bright and white. I have two sets, one for my low beams, one for my fog lamps.
Bought two of these for my 2014 yamaha fjr 1300 to replace the stock hid lamps. I wanted something closer to led which would also work with the reflective properties of the factory housing. Many of the led lamps do not work well as the housing is not designed for them for my gen 3 bike. These are definitely “whiter” than factory and visibility is better but they are not really close to xenon in either cri or temp. I am satisfied especially at the price and am glad i replaced the factory ones with these after riding around 50 miles at night but if you are absolutely set on xenon look or led these will leave you wanting a bit.
Definitely brighter/white light than my factory bulbs.
Put in some 9145’s for the fogs, and 9008’s for the headlamps on my 2014 stoopid dooty, big improvement over stock and i couldn’t be happier.
I replaced the stock bulb on my triumph bonneville with this one – it’s noticeably brighter and cooler in color temperature than the stock bulb and consequently, is viewable from a much greater distance. The reliability of these bulbs is generally very good, but i’ll keep a spare on hand, just in case.
They are whiter than the stock bulbs, but no where near xenon. I tried led bulbs but with the fan they require, they didn’t fit so i thought these might be the next best thing. Not nearly as white or bright as the led or xenons.

This is the easiest way to go to get the white light during the day that you see on the other bikes coming your way. Less expensive and big improvement at night, my stock bulb had the pale yellow look, now it’s bright. Only time will tell about durability and longevity, if it helps cagers see us then the price is well worth it.
Product arrived perfectly, was a bit of a pain to get in my headlights but that is mostly a chrysler issue than the actual product. I would give it five stars, but they were not as white as i was hoping for. Overall, great product though and way better that the stock bulbs that were in my car.
I like the color and brightness of these bulbs for my chevy silverado. I bought a pair for my headlights, but unfortunately one died within 8 months. The second is still going (almost one year as of this review) but i keep a spare standard bulb in the event it goes out too. I really like them, but if they won’t last long, what’s the point. I’ve decided to stick to the standard bulbs from now on.
I’m quite picky about the light bulbs i use in my truck. I needed something clear/bright/easy to see at night, especially in winter here in minnesota. I was hesitant to buy these at first, but i decided to take a chance, and i’m glad i did. The light is a nice, clear white, and not like the bright leds, which i’m really not a fan of. I also purchased the same brand for the front bumper/fog lights on the truck as well. When combined with these as the headlights, it gives a nice, uniform look and i can see the road. I would highly recommend these.
I have a 2014 buick regalregal, and honestly the lights that came with the car were yellowish, and i installed these and they were just a brighter whiter color, no really big difference in my opinion. If you’re looking for the super bright xenon lights that are almost blinding to the person in front of you, these are not the ones. Very easy to install however.
I installed this in my 1982 honda gold wing and it fits and looks great. It’s improved visibility at night and the alternator seems to be handling it well.
I was happy with the light output but after just 2 years, one of the two bulbs burnt out. A bit disappointed as i expected these to last longer.
I purchased this bulb for my 2007 harley davidson sportster to replace the oem. This light amplifies visibility by at least 3 times. I considered changing my whole headlight for something with led’s but this did the trick. Easy installation, very pleased with my purchase.
Not as whitish-blue as the sylvania zxe and not as bright as the piaa xtreme white. Slyvania zxe and philips crystal visioncolor (most whiteish-blue):1.
