Hey,

I wanted to share with you this very educational video from the TRFS regarding OSRAM HID's and what to expect from them in terms of brightness, luminosity and color output (pure white or "tinge" of blue):


It's very interesting to see that there is a new bulb in the lineup, the D4S: OSRAM XENARC 66440 CBB. I currently have the CBI's and its great to know that the CBB's offer more brightness than the CBI's but they do not offer the "tinge" of blue (despite being rated at 7000k) which can be found on the 2017-18 models with LED headlights. Nevertheless an important option to consider in the future.

IMO a must watch for those interested in upgrading your current stock HID's and are not 100% sure what to get or what to expect from the bulbs.

Enjoy!

I heard that Philips Extreme Vision is the brightest among them all, even compared to CBB and CBI.

That is correct, the TRFS made another video comparing top of the line Philips Bulbs with the CBB's, the Philips are brighter but are more on the yellow/white spectrum in terms of color.

Here is the video:
