Philips is little bit more white than Osram.
cause I have one Osram and driver side is Phlips and it doesn't looks same.
Osram is little bit more mild.

i thought i broke the auto level thing last night because i was screwing around with it in the dark and i left the headlights on .....
I still can't figure out how to get the bulbs off it's such a pain in hte ass. I can remove the conector that gives it power but i can't figure out how to get the actual buld out of the headlight housing....It looks like you should be able to turn the black ring around it but it won't turn. Some one help me out so i can swap the bulbs and make sure that it's the actual bulbs that are diff and not a ballast or something else like someone said because this is really getting to me.

Your best bet would be to unscrew the headlights (its like 5 screws) and yes you need to unscrew the black peice.It can be somewhat of a Bit*h but will turn eventually.

I have a set of bulbs that are like new only used for two weeks until the xtec bulbs came in.PM me and we can work it out.
