OEM Quality: Philips fights back! The Osram Cool Blue Intense series has taken over as the world's best-performing OEM+ "5000K" HID lamps, but their arch-rival Philips recently introduced the Xtreme Vision series, and a solid competitor they are!
Intense: On top of the unbeatable longevity, precision, and performance that all base-model Philips bulbs offer, the XV-C1's add another few hundred lumens to the bottom line while upping the Kelvin rating to 4800K. Just like the Osram CBI, Philips managed more lumens out of a higher Kelvin bulb.
Crisp: Just shy of 5000K and north of an OEM 4300K, these will offer you a perfectly white light output 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.
Genuine: Here at TRS, we pride ourselves on being one of the last few distributors shipping genuine Philips & Osram lamps in the US. It is estimated that 80% of these bulbs sold through outlets such as eBay or Amazon are fakes. Don't be fooled by ads offering these bulbs for anything less than $150 as there is a high chance the bulbs are cheap Chinese knock offs.
Priced Right: Doing some competitive research, the only other store offering these bulbs that are verifiably real Philips is offering them for $210. Can't beat our price!
Trusted: For more than a decade, we've worked hard to earn our killer reputation. Car guys world-wide know that TRS carries the internet's best selection of high performance automotive and powersport lighting products at the best prices, and we've got the best, most knowledgeable team of real enthusiasts to help back it up. If we sell it, then you bet we've put it to the test on our own cars, trucks, and bikes. Need a recommendation on parts for your project? Got a tech question? Wholesale inquiry? Contact Us

I bought these to replace my OEM 85122 Phillips bulbs in my FX-R retrofit. What an amazing output! A bit warmer than the CBI. Glad to have bought these. Will buy them again.

I replaced my Morimoto Five5 bulbs with these (along with new Matsushita ballasts) and they are stellar. I chose these over the CBIs because of the slightly warmer color temp and competitive light output (several reviews on the forums have these at the same Lux as CBIs). I am also a Philips junkie. They light up QUICK and have full color in 1.5-2.0 seconds. I love them and will ALWAYS stick to OEM. These are in the same league as the Nightbreakers and CBIs. If you are reading this, you better chose from one of the three and nothing else. These are the Kings of output.
Bought these to replace both my factory Philips (one died) and am very happy with my purchase. Fast shipping from TRS and they did a great job packaging my bulbs.
