another halogen frustraton

So even after reading other members say not to bother with BMW performance bulbs, i still bought 2 pairs to try out. Performance Light EVO p/n 63212408030 is not available in the US but dealer in Stuttgart have them in stock. Dealer is right outside of barracks so a short walk to buy them. Since my car is at home, i have no comparison until now (home).

Even before opening the package, it appears the bulbs are same as Phillips Extreme Vision. Lo and behold, they are exactly same. I bought Extreme Vision for $29/pair from Amazon awhile back, bimmer bulbs cost me 39 euro/pair.

So advice to fellow bimmer owners; Extreme vision or Diamond vision is the utmost you can look for improving your halogen headlights.

I have the crystal vision ultra but it's a just a tad brighter than oem. Was wondering if the one from ijdmtoy is any brighter. http://store.ijdmtoy.com/JDM-Look-Su...yper_white.htm

The crystal and diamond vision bulbs will produce less usable light than ordinary bulbs

halogen will always be halogen, the only thing different with those other bulbs is the light color but you will not get better lighting at all, in fact if anything it will look nicer but the output is most likely worse
