My Ride: M3
F/S Brand new Philips Ultinon 6000k 85122WX D2S bulbs

I bought these for my M3 but decided to go with 8000k to match my angel eyes.

So, they are brand new and for sale. Paid $150 + shipping. Sell for $80 shipped in the lower 48 states or $90 shipped to canada. OBO.

I ship via USPS with tracking. If you buy them today or tomorrow, I will rush them to the post office to get there before Christmas (for USA only).

Sorry, I was never trying to pass off bulbs with the wrong picture. I just couldn't right click on the pictures from the maxspeed site. My apologies to everyone. I will not be selling these now that I know they are fake.

wow I think I may have found this site a week late. I just installed these very same HIDs from maxspeed. I even checked the various forums comparing real vs fake and I could have sworn these are real but I'm no expert

They seem to have the correct red salt in the chamber, the proper rivets, the blue return lead (can't really distinguish the "pearl effect") and the top of the glass is cut clear and not cloudy

Is there something you can point to that gives you 100% confidence these are fake? I'd like to call the vendor and return these for a refund if they are in fact fake

thanks in advance for your detailed reply

Where is the cheapest place to get the ultinons? Looks like I got f'd a year ago. And I thought I got a great deal, this explains why

Based on stance55s feedback I bought these http://www.ebay.com/itm/300701776793...84.m1423.l2649

Got them today and they are the real deal

Be careful, lots and lots of fakes out there. I returned my maxspeed bulbs for a full refund. One bulb was white with a blue hue and the other was a totally different temperature and had a purple colored light

The real ultinon 6000K will have the dark blue/purple ceramic return with the pearl effect. The light color when new will be white with a subtle violet hue. I understand that in 50-100 hours they will color shift to a slight blue hue

Don't try to get a "deal" on these, you'll end up with another set of fakes_nr_
