Auto Express Bulbs Test 2011
This year's Auto Express bulb test sees Philips taking the plaudits in 2 out of 3 categories. You can get hold of these award winning bulbs here at Car Bulbs Direct. Remember to use our bulb finder on the right if you don't know which fitting your car needs.
The Auto Express test involced three categories of bulbs:
Up to 100% brighter:
Best Buy! "Precise positioning of the filament explains the performance of the plus 100 per cent X-tremeVision. Every bulb is inspected, which is why it’s so pricey. But it pays off, with a bright hot spot nearly 75 metres away."
Up to 60% brighter:
Best Buy! "Great consistency and a sharply defined beam secure the win for established VisionPlus. A hot spot close to the 75-metre mark put it clear of rivals. Both samples performed well with virtually no adjustment needed. A top choice."
"Latest blue Philips claims to be the ‘ultimate xenon-effect’ bulb, and has an interference coating to keep light losses to a minimum. Great build meant our samples gave near-identical performance."
