Default *** UPDATED***Philips Diamond Vision and Luminics JDM Yellows

I have had a few requests for pcs of the setup.... for the money these Philips lights are the closest things i've seen to an HID.. I just wanted to get these until I get around to ordering and doing an HID retrofit.. but I am very happy with em.. The pic still doesnt do the light justice.. it was foggy and rainy out, but just wanted to share...

Looks great.
I suppose I should move someplace where they actually get thick fog. I think I've used my fogs twice in four years.

Any word on how long the Diamond Visions last? I had SilverStars on my 2004 and had to buy new ones every year.

from the pictures of the x-treme bulbs i've seen, they are not tinted blue. does that mean they will illuminate yellowish like stock lights or will they be white/blue like diamond vision?

I actually had the xtreme vision ones. they were sent by mistake instead of the diamondvisions.. they are alot brighter but they still illuminate yellow... you would never be pulle dover with the diamondvision expecially on a saab because they are so close to an HID plus with the porjector they look stock.. they are only 55 dollars.. I highly reccomend them , i will get some more pics up tomorrow night for you all...

i bought my diamondvision from the same website. i don't recommend them. they never return emails and it took me forever to get the bulbs. i know they are from overseas but i still don't think it should take as much as a month. as far as the bulbs themselves, i'm very satisfied with them.

I fail to understant what are you looking for from headlights..
Pretty bling colours of blue or white or purple.
Or headlights that illuminate the route in front of you at night time.
Sorry but I am too old or simply on the wrong forum..

Well...... The diamondvision still light more than the stock bulb and give the HID effect for a tiny fraction of the cost... If I were looking for BLING factory I probably would have gone with painting my bulbs purple or buying 4 dollar ebay bulbs.. The diamondvision bulbs are hands down the best looking and most cost effective way to get a nice color beam without spending 500 dollars
