Mein Auto: Saphire Black 2012 320i
Phillips Blue Vision Ultra H7 replacements for OEM

Due to cost ceiling for my leased company 2012 f30 320i sedan here in Australia I couldn't include Xenon light package (too many other goodies I did want as higher priority).

Must admit OEM halogens look pathetic compared to xenon .. Had xenon in my 2010 E90. 320i .. And do miss them now ..

Don't want to mess around with HID conversion kits .. Saw ad for Phillips Blue Vision Ultra H7 replacement globes saying the output was close to HID pure white ...

Anyone got any comments on these?

I know they won't be perfect .. But must be better than the "yellow" OEM halogens and are a quick ten minute replacement ...

Feedback appreciated ...

They are probably a higher color temperature and, thus, a bit more white/blue than stock.

Unfortunately, whiter/bluer light is less effective for the driver trying to see the road so there is a tradeoff of efficacy for appearance.

Personally, I wouldn't bother to spend the money and would just enjoy the car.
