The Best Overall Xenon Bulb Upgrade 

OSRAM Night Breaker Unlimited

The OSRAM Night Breaker Unlimited (NBU) bulbs offer both great low beam and high-beam output for vehicles with a bi-xenon setup. They even beat out the newer Night Breaker Lasers (NBL)! The color is just a bit whiter than OE, but if your'e looking for a whiter bulb, check out the Night Breaker Lasers or the Philips Xtreme Vision Gen2. The OSRAM NBU's are a great upgrade from your old worn out OE bulbs and are backed with the quality OSRAM stamp!

  • 4.2 Star Overall Rating
  • +26% More Low-Beam Light, +7% More High-Beam Light, & +5% More Total Lumens
  • 4450k Color Temperature (simliar to OE, tad whiter) vs  4200k for OEM bulbs

The Best COLOR Upgrade

OSRAM Cool Blue Boost (CBB)

The OSRAM CBB Kit has an incredibly bright low-beam hotspot (only 2% behind the OSRAM NBU), making it the best kit when you are concerned with your distance down the road, and sporting a new color. High-beam output is just a bit brighter than OE brightness too.

  • 3.9 Star Overall Rating
  • +24% More Low-Beam Light, +5% High-Beam Light, & -4% Total Lumens (due to the cooler color)
  • 5450k Color Temperature (pure white, hint of blue) vs  4200k for OEM bulbs
  • About $130 after Promotions (check PowerBulbs for latest available Coupons) *D2S

GT Ultra Xenon HID

The Best Xenon Bulb Upgrade Value

GT Ultra Xenon (4300k model)

The GT Ultra Xenon's are a newer entry to the Xenon market from PowerBulbs, but the company has been around since the 90's. These bulbs tested BETTER than anything from Philips or OSRAM, quite shocking to our surprise. They are an incredible buy for those wating a good product while saving a lot of money. They are engineered with high quality glass, and the best part is the color temperature of exactly 5000k (4300k model tested) giving your vehicle a fresh new look while maintaining good visibility at night. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  • 4.5 Star Overall Rating
  • +31% More Low-Beam Light, +10% High-Beam Light, & +0% Total Lumens
  • 5000k Color Temperature (pure white) vs  4200k for OEM bulbs
  • Only about $45 after Promotions (check PowerBulbs for latest available Coupons) *D2S, Incredible Buy

The Best Extreme budget Xenon Bulb

ZRSJ (5000k model)

How can this be the brightest bulb we tested, and it's from Amazon? We're not sure, but all of our samples tesed very high, and if they were an incredible bright product, we wouldn't recommend them! This kit provides incredible light output at an amazing price point! Just don't expect them to last nearly as long as the major brands. Most HID bulbs from Amazon lack the precise mounting system, however these have them. If you can't afford the major brands, or just don't want to spend much to get your xenon headlights back in order, look no further than the ZRSJ Xenon Bulbs.

  • 4.6 Star Overall Rating
  • +37% Low-Beam Light, +4% High-Beam Light, & +5% Ambient Light
  • 4650k Color Temperature (pure white, hint of yellow) vs  4200k for OEM bulbs
  • Under $20, Extreme Budget Buy
