Can I use X-treme Vision H1 in my car?
If your vehicle uses a normal H1 halogen bulb then you can use this product. Not sure if you use H1 bulbs in your car? Please refer to our bulb finder. If your vehicle has Xenon HID bulbs then this product is not suitable for you. If you need any further assistance please contact us before purchasing.

How many bulbs are in the pack?
You will receive two H1 bulbs.

Do I need to modify anything on my vehicle?
No modification to your vehicle is required, simply change the bulbs in the normal way.

Will using Philips X-treme Vision affect my vehicle warranty or insurance?
No, because you are not modifying your vehicle, using these bulbs will not affect either your warranty or insurance. You are simply using a more efficient and effective bulb to deliver more light on the road.

How do I change the bulbs in my vehicle?
This is usually relatively simple and can be done yourself in most cases, but the procedure can vary from vehicle to vehicle. Please take a quick look in your vehicle handbook for specific instructions for your vehicle.

Is Philips X-treme Vision legal to use?
As a European made product, it is legal to use in Europe and in most countries around the world. Unfortunately we cannot provide specific guidance on the legality for individual countries due to varying legislation.

Does this bulb generate more heat?
No, the bulb uses a standard wattage so no extra heat is generated.

Are they safe to use with plastic lenses?
Yes, due to the fact that no extra heat is generated and the product is manufactured with quartz glass - this prevents any UV rays from leaving the bulb.

How does the bulb generate more light without increasing the wattage?
This is achieved through improved design and the use of a xenon/halogen gas mix in the bulb for greater efficiency.

Philips X-treme Vision H1 (Twin Pack)

5 Exellent

This are brilliant bulbs and a very good upgrade from standard halogens. Completely transforms night driving, which I do a lot of and I find it far easier to concentrate and less tiring when driving at night. My friend couldn't get over the brightness when with me. As for power bulbs I would not hesitate to shop again, fast delivery well packaged and very helpful.

5 the best

so glad Philips finally started doing a h1 in these. as my 850 t5r has some first gen night breakers in it. I haven't tried them yet but the Philips h7 ive used were definitely brighter.

4 Philips X-treme Vision H1 Twin Pack Review

Firstly, I don't know what X-treme means. If you're trying to say 'Extreme' then learn to spell correctly. Secondly the Philips packaging is poor. When my bulbs arrived they rattled around loosely inside the plastic case. I believe this to be an issue with Philips packaging and has nothing to do with the way PowerBulbs packaged my parcel. Fortunately the bulbs still worked when I installed them. As far as light performance goes, they light up. I don't have the tools to measure light output scientifically. To my eyes they are just as good or bad as any other lights I have ever tried. My only disappointment with this purchase is the support of the bastardization of the english language by marketers today. The only thing worse than spelling words like semi literate children would be calling them "smart" lights, assigning intelligence to an inanimate object.

4 Brighter than OEM but...

As other users have stated, one of my bulbs was loose when it arrived. Its working, but I hope that it doesn't affect the longevity. One thing that should be shown is a pic of the back of the packaging and yes, I know it's on the description. I missed the fact that the color of the lightbulbs is "3350K". The bulb color is like the OEM bulbs except they are brighter, light up more and further down the road. Which they were at least 4500K, oh well. Overall, they are a major improvement over OEM bulbs. If you want whiter color you might want to pick a different bulb.

4 Excellent Except

Arrived quickly. Sadly lamps loose in philips packaging both rattling around. Lamps still worked must be made for rough handling. Must have come out of fixings after dispatch?.

These bulbs have transformed the night driving in my ST220, where with standard bulbs it was very easy to run out of light!

5 Best globes I've had

These things are awesome compared to what I had before... and without damaging my headlamp housing with higher wattage. These don't last quite as long as standard, but you have to ask yourself if it's really worth not seeing the extra distance when it could save your car/life? And with the prices on this site, it's certainly far better than walking into a retailer and paying full price or getting inferior brand junk.

4 Packaging issues

The lamps came totally loose in the hard plastic packaging - both of them had gotten loose from their fixed position and they were wobbling around in the hard case. Thank god they both work fine, but when I received the package I thought they were loose nuts and bolts in there! I'm sure it will have an impact on their time to live. Everything else was good - the bulbs are great but the packaging is crap - there's no safety on the package itself, so anyone could take the bulbs if they wanted to and replacing with different ones and the packaging looks intact

By Funky Buddha on

Our reply:
We can assure you that the bulbs are secure in their holders when they leave us. Unfortunately, this problem does sometimes occur with Philips packaging. We have informed Philips of this issue and so hopefully, improvements will be made to avoid this happening in the future. You are; of course covered by our 12 month warranty and so should any problems occur during that time, then please don't hesitate to contact us.

5 Great bulbs

Totally worth it! I am amazed. Before, I used ordinary H1 bulbs, and at first bought X-treme Vision H7 bulbs and was so satisfied that I decided to buy H1 as well and give it try. You see really 100% more, with full beam being really full beam. I found it very useful on local roads. Most important (at least for me), colours appear to be natural, i.e. light is warm. Tested it during heavy snowing, and reflection was acceptable, making their usage justified. Highly recommended. Absolutely. Will buy again.

5 Jaguar X-Type

I have owned a 2008 (08) Jaguar for over three years and have always complained about the quality of the highlight beams, as they have a yellow glow and are not very bright. I decided to buy these bulbs after reading reviews in Autocar about H7 bulbs (which do not fit an X-type), as the H1 seemed similar. I wish I had heard about these earlier, as I have found a marked improvement in the brightness of the headlights and also the beams are now a 'white' light, gone is the yellow glow. I would not say I can see further into the distance although visibility in front of the car certainly has improved. They are definitely a product I would invest in again.

5 Love the Lights

Before I install the lights I was going to get rid of my Halo light I recently bought because they was not bright enough and I could not get the hid for them after install the Philip X-treme Vision I am very happy I am going to check the web site for 893 bulbs as well

5 Best so far

Very bright, nice and white, good pattern so don't get flashed by oncoming traffic. Glad they're guaranteed......

By Chris C on

Philips X-treme Vision H1 (Twin Pack)

5 Great Factory Upgrade

Much better performance compared to the stock globes in my Subaru. Creates both a longer and wider beam with a more even spread of light. Willing to accept a shorter globe life as a tradeoff for being able to see much better.

By Matt on

Philips X-treme Vision H1 (Twin Pack)

4 Great Lights

These bulbs are excellent giving more light and better spread than standard. The only negative is that they tend to burn out rather quickly.

By Alan on

Philips X-treme Vision H1 (Twin Pack)

5 Safer Driving In The Dark

These bulbs work. They illuminate the sides of dark country roads and give the driver a longer view. I must add that they were not at all easy to fit in our Mitsubishi Gallant, but it was worth the effort.

By IRI on

Philips X-treme Vision H1 (Twin Pack)

5 Excellent Road Lighting

Great road lighting. probably the best out of a 55W halogen. Color temp is that of a normal halogen but this provides the best possible lighting. Recommended for High Beams.
