I ordered these to replace my OEM HID's @ 4300K in my 07' Prius because of bulb failure at 80,000 miles. Please beware! Although the light output was 6000K, they cut the distance nearly in half! Seriously in 1/2! OMG! You would think the light output in front of you would be more intense because of the loss of distance but it was not! I would rate these as dangerously inadaquate and will be searching to replace these immediately after writing this review just for my own safety. The OEM's had good distance with fair intensity but a sharp cut off. These reach half as far with no better intensity with a dull cut off/merge point. I feel so cheated! No more Phillips bulbs for me!
