Until very recently, only new car owners could enjoy the LED aesthetics and performance. Thanks to new developments, passionate drivers can upgrade their existing bulbs to LED retrofit bulbs which offer similar style and performance. Fitted with exclusive OEM Altilon SMD LEDs, the Philips X-tremeUltinon gen2 LED delivers cool white light and excellent beam pattern. Presenting itself with sophisticated functionality and wide compatibility, this system allows easy and straightforward retrofitting of many cars that are not equipped with LED lighting yet. The modular design allows individual configurations for a wide variety of different models. The elegant and compact design of this LED lighting ensures easy, self-explanatory installation. The highly compact LEDs provide an accurate beam pattern and effective light output. The electromagnetic interference shielding complies with automotive industry standards for electromagnetic interference. The LED’s patented heat management and the use of high-quality aluminium in a one-piece design both ensure a constant and durable high road illumination. The headlight bulbs feature an optimised colour tone and produce an intense, neutral white light beam for more road safety and driving comfort, especially at night. The Philips X-tremeUltinon gen2 LED allows safe driving without disturbing oncoming traffic or other road users.
