yea i have. i have used them myself on an older sedan. they last longer. and you can see the blue/purple cutoff really well from close range objects. i haven't tried the prolumens yet, but if it's anything like VBs bulbs. you don't see that beautiful cutoff.

and umnitza's selling them for 167 shipped. i'd go ahead and buy the prolumens. you get a second set for free.

Phillips; had them for almost 4 years now, still going strong.

Paid about 300 for the pair back then, now this place has them for $99 each!
