Is there a big difference between the philips and cbi's? maybe not. but I love the 5k color, and the light output.
I think ill go with the 85122+, i just need it for local city driving and the video jake posted looks good to me!

Ahh, I'm 19. so that's like 6 hours for me. But I'm getting a large settlement very soon, so money won't hold me back on much.
But the philips are still pretty good, I hear. Best bang for the buck.

Here, pulled some footage from my dashcam. Only spot on my way to work that is completely dark.

Snow/rain/wet roads and dry roads for comparison.
