Really? Cause mine don't match any better than stock. Looks exactly the same.

I had to double check that I didn't just put the same bulb back in. That's how close it is.

I have these and they are definitely whiter than stock and are pretty much an exact match to my retro. After 8 months, one did burn out and i'm mailing it in tomorrow so hopefully all is good. As far as color, they were really white to me.

i am also using the Bosch Mini H3 projectors. not sure how the stock projectors are, but the Boschs are crystal clear just like the lenses for the HID retro.

Memphis,

You were supposed to have gotten two. I'll inform Xtec of the mistake. If you have another problem, you will definitely get two bulbs. With regards to the bulb itself, it is an Xtec bulb and it carries the same warranty as the original. Replacement bulbs are sent in white boxes, rather than the fancy plastic packaging. The box should have been labeled with a symbol resembling an "A" which stands for AU-Lite, which is Xtec's parent company.

To address some other concerns, the bulbs should have a blue coating. If they do not, let us know.

With regards to the color, they are 4000k in color and are as close to HIDs in color as you can get while still maintaining decent output. It's not possible to obtain the look of HIDs using halogen bulbs. If there was a way, people would just buy that instead of HIDs. With that said, they do match HIDs much better than your stock halogen bulbs, which will appear VERY yellow alongside any set of HIDs.

Ok thanks falcon,,, Maybe then I wont feel so bad bout buying these if all this gets kinda cleared up.
