Test Details:
† An OEM 2009 Mercedes EE550 halogen low beam headlight projector (H7) was used for low-beam results, and an OEM 2017 Kia Sorento halogen high beam projector (H7) was used for high-beam results, all at 12 feet (3.66 meters).
Percentage values are compared to an OSRAM OE/Stock halogen bulb. Stock Halogen Projector Beam Score for comparison is 4.5 Stars. Test results are per bulb (each).
†† Kelvin/Color: Stock Halogen Color Temp Kelvin is 3300k. Color shown is tested using a kelvin meter pointed at headlights output against a white test wall. Kelvin rating of 4000k has a yellow incandescent tint, 5000k is pure white, 6000k has a blue tint.
††† Beam images taken with the same camera exposure settings, color is near true to life but will vary depending on your viewing screen. Star score is based off of hotspot as well as overall beam combined.

This page compares these kits to a stock halogen bulb, and is sorted by best star rating.
