The headlights in my brand new Ford Taurus company car (9005 Halogen) were disappointingly dim. The 2012 Taurus uses a projection lens instead of a reflector. I did some internet research and found articles about a technology that GE invented called HIR (Halogen Infrared Reflecting). It's a glass coating process that reflects some of the energy from the filament back on the filament, causing it to burn hotter and brighter. Toshiba produced the bulbs under license for a while, then stopped...not sure why, since the bulb was a wild success.

Now, Philips makes a variant of this technology, but without the special coating, which is proprietary to GE. The 9011 & 9012 bulbs, found in several higher-end cars, can be easily modified to be replacements for the 9005 & 9006 bulbs. The 9011 is can be used to replace the 9005, and the 9012 can be used to replace the 9006. There is a slight (and very easy) modification to one of the mounting tabs (can be found with Google search). Since they are the same wattage, there are no problems using them as replacements.

I purchased the 9011 bulbs and used a Dremel tool to make very quick work of the modification. I replaced one of the bulbs and did a side-by-side comparison on my garage door at night, and WOW...major improvement. After replacing both bulbs, I went for an evening drive down a very dark country road and was extremely impressed.

I have used the Sylvania SilverStar bulbs in several other vehicles, and while they are good bulbs, these bulbs out-perform those bulbs hands down. The best part...there's no change in the light distribution pattern from the original bulbs, so I'm not blinding oncoming traffic...unlike several folks who use HID replacement bulbs in halogen applications. The light spread of an HID bulb in a halogen fixture is completely uncontrollable, and illegal.

I'm very pleased with the performance, and will be replacing the 9005's in my parent's Nissan Murano soon.

The ones I received were true HIR bulbs. You have to be careful, sometimes you end up with non-HIR bulbs which is a waste of money. The true HIR bulbs made by Philips will have "HIR" printed/stamped on the back of the bulb's housing. They will come in a small carboard box and not a blister pack; the ones in the blister pack may or may not be actual HIR bulbs.

That being said, these are exceptionally bright and outperform any of the gimmicky bulbs around. Just remember, you can't improve light output by adding a coating to the bulb. Sorry, your blue headlight bulbs will never outperform these HIR bulbs.

Lastly, you should NOT install these where they will be used as a DRL (Daytime Running Light). For example, on my vehicle, the high-beams also function as DRLs during normal driving. Halogen bulbs are designed to run at a specific wattage within a certain temperature range. The DRL circuit works by running the bulbs at a much lower wattage. This causes the bulb to run at a **lower temperature**. The end result is the bulb never gets hot enough to reconstitute the filament particles, and the globe becomes cloudy.

TL;DR: Halogens run at a lower wattage, such as in a DRL application, are quickly damaged and produce less light.

I've included two pictures of the STOCK bulbs from my car. You can clearly see the damage done by running in DRL mode after ONLY 3,000 miles. Again, these are the STOCK bulbs, and not the HIR bulbs. Since it is legal to do so in my area, I disabled the DRL circuit before installing the HIR bulbs. Some countries/states/cities have laws about DRLs, so it would behoove you to double-check before modifying your car.

If you live in an area with lots of deer and other wild animals and drive on dark rural roads, these lights are for you.
Best high beams I ever had.
In my state, failure to dim is a moving violation with up to 200 a dollar fine. These lights, properly used, will no doubt improve your safety at night.
Please don't forget to dim in the presence of other traffic!

I bought these as an upgrade to the oem lights for my 2012 gmc Sierra. These are not direct replacements for the oem and the tabs should be trimmed a quick Google search should turn up instructions
