Style Name: 9012 Verified Purchase
I replaced my low breams with these on my 2005 Grand Cherokee. I used to nail clippers to trim the middle tab to look like the stock bulb which I believe was a 9006. It was an easy mod, just a little trimming and it snapped right in. My lights seem like a legitimate 50% brighter and very white opposed to the softer yellowish light from the stock bulbs. I also purchased the 9011s for my highs and my fogs, I haven't installed them yet but I anticipate needing to do a trim on one or both as well. I have yellow lamin-x film on my fogs for contrast as you can see in the pic. I'm a curious as to how bright they will be with the high beam 9011s.

I bought a pair of these for my girlfriend's Camry. The original bulbs had not burned out, but after 50K miles and 4 years, I decided I would replace them anyway. There was a definite improvement in brightness. Not an "OH MY GOD WOW!" type of thing, but we both noticed it was brighter. Her old bulbs were slightly brown (just from use and age) so it makes sense that these new bulbs would show an improvement. Coincidentally, these were the OEM bulbs direct from Toyota in Japan. I was surprised to pull out her old bulbs and they were these same Philips. I replaced both with new ones and put the old ones in the trunk as spares.

Took all of 2 minutes and I feel just a little bit better knowing she's got new bulbs in her car. Being able to see an extra 10 or 20 feet ahead of you at night can make all the difference in the world in accident avoidance.

Style Name: 9006 Verified Purchase
I already installed one side with the Philips 9006 headlight that I bought from Kmart in the past 1-2 years(?) for my T. Highlander. This time, rather than trekking out to the store, I just had Amazon deliver it me (for cheaper too!).

At risk of making me look like an idiot, but for the benefit of someone else who is not super car-savvy:

Initially when I tried to change the bulb, the headlight wouldn't fit into the socket no matter what I did. Then I realized I was trying to change out the highbeam bulb... oops. When I replaced the correct lowbeam (regular headlight) bulb it fit just fine. There is a groove on the inside of the connector that insures that you can only replace a lowbeam with lowbeam (9006) and the same with highbeam (9005). So, even though I did this easily in the past, I guess I was having one of those moments. Only cost me an extra 10 minutes of bewilderment.

Also, never touch the bulb itself with your bare hands as oil residue left the halogen bulb will shorten the lifespan of the bulb.

Update July 2013: Bulb still works fine. The one bought from Kmart from a couple of years ago is also working.

Style Name: 9012 Verified Purchase
I do a lot of night driving, especially in the winter. So, being able to see the road well is important. My 2010 Chevy Colorado uses the 9006 bulb, so when it was time to replace them, I began my search for the best 9006 replacement and stumbled upon the Philips 9012 HIR2. HID kits were considered, but with all of the problems people were having with ballast replacements and the fact they emit a huge amount of glare and are illegal in some areas made me shy away and I'm glad I did.

First, let me say that the 9012 HIR2 bulb fits right into the 9006 socket with a slight tab modification. You can learn more about it by searching the web, but the mod takes about 10 seconds per bulb. The bases of the two types are interchangeable, so it's truly plug and play. One thing to note about the 9012 HIR2's is that they don't have a blacked out tip like the 9006. So, before you order these, make sure your vehicle has a glare shield for the low beam lights. Otherwise, you'll just end up blinding people with the glare.

On paper, these bulbs look great compared to stock 9006 bulbs. 1850 lumens vs. 1000 stock, 3500k color vs. 3100 stock and these are rated at 1400 hours vs. anywhere between 700 and 1000 stock. These specifications are far superior to ANY stock or aftermarket 9006 bulb. And, when you buy the Philips 9012 HIR2 here on Amazon, they're far less expensive than at other sites, and less expensive than lesser bulbs like the Sylvania Silverstars.

So, how do they work in real world driving situations? Two words: they're amazing! My stock 9006 bulbs provided about 2-3 seconds of light ahead of my truck while the 9012's provide at least double that...critical time when you're trying to spot deer.

Style Name: 9003 Verified Purchase
Great price, perfect fit. Had a bulb go out, and decided to change them both while I was at it. It took maybe five minutes total (2005 Honda Pilot). Hit youtube if you want to see a quick instruction on how to do it before you start, the video is longer than it takes to change it. I couldn't recommend these any higher.

Edit: 1/3/14. Less than a year and one of the bulbs has failed. I will probably order one more and cross my fingers. -1 star for now.

Edit: 5/12/15. One of my original replacement bulbs is still going strong, and the "second" replacement is still in good shape so it's possible I just got a bad bulb.

Edit: 7/23/15. Had to replace another one. Three bulbs in approximately 18 months so it doesn't look like it was just "one bad bulb". They're cheap, you'll have to decide if they're cheap enough to replace them every year to a year and a half.
