OEM QUALITY: Stand out look! If you're in the market for the best quality 5000K D2S HID bulbs on the market, it's hard to look past the newest option on the market from Philips, their White Vision Gen 2's! Sure the new Osram CBH is a solid competitor, but in third party comparisons between the latest and greatest from Philips and Osram, these Philips 5000K HID bulbs always took the win in the intensity department.
INTENSE: These are the European-market replacement for the old "WX / Ultinon" series 6000K bulbs from Philips. What's strange is that they rate them at 5000K, but gave them a blue return wire. Philips has always followed the color-keyed return wire standard that 4300K = brown (85122)....5000K = white (XV) and 6000K = blue (WX) - and side by side with the XV, these are most definitely cooler. All that said, despite what Philips themselves rated the bulbs, we're calling their bluff. The WHV2 is their new 5000K option. Confusing we know...but we think they're doing it for legality reasons.
CRISP: The WHV2's will offer you a perfectly white light output with just a light tinge of exotic looking blue hue to it- but without being too stark - giving users the perfect contrast between style and excellent visibility while driving at night. If budget isn't a major concern, you will not be disappointed.
