Holy Moley. I would say, maybe 20% brighter than the Philips. Nice and worth the hassle.

Based on what? Did you measure the output like candlepower.com did?

No, no measurement data just a typical BITOG response. LOL

Based on the lighted area and brightness in a pitch black area behind my garage. Light is slightly more yellow, but for sure no doubt about it brighter. 20% seems conservative.

SIDE NOTE: The removed Philips 9011 had zero yellow staining internally.

So how do they look? I asked on Amazon and a guy said they have Toshiba brand on his. I bought two pairs. I assume they fit fine with the standard modification.

BTW Philips NEVER answered my email.


Were you writing to Phillips USA or Phillips DE?

I have had the Toshiba HIR bulbs on my Toyota for 8 1/2 years, and it also uses the high beams for the DRLs. I hope that the Philips HIR bulbs turn out to be as high quality as the Toshibas have been, if so, you have nothing to worry about.
