Philips
Car manufacturers choice

Philips is the choice of all major car manufacturers. For 100 years, Philips has been on the forefront of the automotive lighting industry, introducing technological innovations that have become standard on modern automobiles. Today, one in two cars in Europe and one in three worldwide is equipped with Philips lighting.

Philips
ECE homologation

Philips Automotive is dedicated to producing products and services in the Original Equipment Manufacturer market as well as in aftermarket. Our products are manufactured from high-quality materials and tested to the highest specifications to maximise the safety and driving comfort of our customers. Our entire production is meticulously tested, controlled and certified (ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and QSO 9000) to the highest ECE requirements.

Philips
UV Resistant

Philips car lamps are highly UV resistant. Philips anti-UV coating technology protects the headlights against harmful ultraviolet radiation, making Philips UV-coated quartz glass ideal for all driving conditions and ensures their longevity.

Philips
High quality and visibility

X-treme Vision provides you with improved reactivity thanks to earlier recognition of obstacles and traffic signs. Light is a fundamental part of the driving experience and light is the first and only part of the safety circle that actually helps prevent accidents. Philips promotes active safety protection to prevent accidents by increasing overall visibility and road illumination.

Philips
Change in pairs

Change both your headlamps at once for more safety. It is highly recommended to change them in pairs for symmetrical light performance.

Philips
Award-winning car lamps

Philips is an award-winning car lamp manufacturer. Our lamps are often recognised by automotive experts.

Philips
High quality quartz glass

Philips car lamps are made of high-quality quartz glass. UV-quartz glass is stronger than hard glass and highly resistant to temperature extremes and vibrations, which eliminates the risk of explosion. Philips quartz-glass lamps (filament 2 650º C and glass 800º C) are able to withstand severe thermal shock. With the capability of increased pressure inside the lamp, UV-quartz glass is able to produce a more powerful light.

Philips
Resistance against humidity

Philips car lamps are highly resistant against humidity. Only a burning bulb made of quartz glass (filament 2650°c, glass 800°c) can resist thermal shocks such as when a drop of cold water touches the hot bulb, which can happen when you drive through water with a broken headlight unit.

I have these fitted in my mk1 Focus, they are excellent bulbs. They are much brighter and on dipped beam have a very clean cut off, they do not dazzle oncoming traffic but make night driving so much easier and less stressful. Main beam seems to be much longer also and the spread of light is better than the standard bulbs, showing people and animals about to cross the road more clearly, and road signs really stand out and are not likely to be missed,
I do a lot of driving in my job and these bulbs make it much easier and safer.
I have recently had one bulb blow after just over 6 months use but to be fair I do spend a lot of time on the road, with many stops and starts while visiting up to about 90 customers a day, mainly in the evening so I do a lot of night driving.
I have bought another pair of these in order to replace the blown one as I am so impressed with them and could not bear the thought of reverting back to standard bulbs.
They give a nice white light, not the overly blue light that many upgrade bulbs have and give more light than the bulbs of that type which I have tried.
I have also recomended these to friends and they have been very happy with the results.
They are on the expensive side but I think the extra safety, less eye strain and less tiring driving are worth the extra money.

I have an old Jaguar XJS with big headlamps at the front. The purchase of the Philips bulbs was triggered by one of the headlamp bulbs failing (it is a personal thing for me but I think any lights not working on a car make it look cheap). Anyway, I found that the old XJS bulbs looked like a lit candle in a distant window and was interested in these 'brighter' bulbs that seem to be able to beat the laws of physics in that they are a significant percentage brighter than normal bulbs but still use the same power and are within the legal requirements. I also didn't want the 'chav' simulated HID bulbs which are basically an ordinary bulb but with a blue filter on them (in my opinion). So the Philips pitch sold me. I am writing this review, it must be about a year on, and these bulbs are just right. No issues with how long they last, in contradiction of another review I read, there are still working perfectly. I would be struggling to say that they are brighter than an standard bulb but they are certainly brighter than the 'candles' that were fitted previously. The colour tint is also fairly neutral, not too warm or too cold. All of what I have said is very subjective but I like these bulbs and would seek them out again if needed in the future.

X-Treme Vision from Philips. I had these for around 18 Months before one blew. They are a definate upgrade however to the standard bulbs i had origonally (+100% View), really notice the extra vision on unlit roads. An interesting effect of the whiter light is that road signs really pop up from further afield.

As a product update you can now get the newer version of these which are rated at 130% view Philips 12342XV+S2 H4 X-Treme Vision +130%, Headlight Car Bulbs (Twin-Pack). I would recommend looking at them before considering these bulbs.

If you have found my review somewhat helpful a click on the ‘yes’ button would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Tried every so called upgrade bulb. These are the best. Most light of any, excellent beam pattern with super sharp cut off on dip and real long distance main. Completely legal and simply replace original bulbs.

As a replacement for the factory fitted bulbs that came on my Berlingo van these are a revelation. Significantly brighter than the standard fitment with a nice sharp cut off on dipped beam.

Regretfully, one has failed after four months of minimal use. Not good enough for a bulb that cost a tenner. The light is so good I am going to order another pair but if I encounter another premature failure I will have to consider another brand next time.

Update: The second bulb failed two days later. In short, neither bulb lasted much more than four months. At almost £20 for the pair an expensive venture into Phillips headlight bulbs. I will try the Osrams next time!

As such I have downgraded my rating to one star solely because of the limited life of a very expensive bulb.

Just received and fitted H4 bulbs to my Nissan Note and what a difference.
Instead of two light sources on the road from the two bulbs, with a rather awkward join, I now have one intense light spread across the road with a superb sharp cutoff at the top.
The light is much more intense and very white with no visible joining of the two bulbs. The bulbs I replaced are only 8 months old so should be as new.
For the price paid these are an absolute must have. Have seen some criticism of the life of these bulbs but I had the same (but H7) in my Almera for five years with no problem. I only do 6000 miles per year so probably get a good life, even if I have to replace them every two years they are still fantastic value.
