Lightbulb PIAA Extreme White vs Platinum Super White

Hi everyone,

Well, I'm in the market again for another set of PIAA's. I did some research and saw the reviews on the Phillips Hi-Visibility bulbs so I picked up a pair. Those bulbs are better then the stock bulbs but (I cant help it, I'm spoiled now) they donít hold a candle to my old PIAAs. Has someone here seen the difference between the Extreme White and Platinum Super White bulbs? I want to get the whitest bulb I can find.

Thanks,
Craig

i've had both..the platinums are brighter and have a purple hue..the xtremes are whiter and use a blue filter...my platinums would blow every 4 months..my h4 xtremes lasted 8..my h3's have lasted over a year now...piaa still = crap imho..but i've milked the 1 year warranty over and over so that's how i justified buying them...

Default PIAA Bulbs

Whoops, this was supposed to be a reply to the following thread:

"PIAA Extreme White vs Platinum Super White"

************************

The Xtreme whites are just a slightly newer filter formulation. They have a slightly whiter and very little bit brighter than the old Super Whites.

I've had six PIAA bulbs installed in my WRX MY2002 for just over a year now and I've never had a problem. I continue to be impressed with their brightness and with the quality construction of my PIAA driving lamps. I've yet to see better built lamps.

Enough PIAA bashing. Install them carefully, treat them well and they'll treat you well.
