One thing to check besides color of bulb (Kelvin rating) is the lumens rating. When they say not the brightest bulb it is probably because it's a lower lumen rated bulb than stock. I just wasted $40.00 on a set of Phillips Diamond Vision bulbs. They are rated at 5,000 Kelvin. They are definitely white as can be. The one thing Phillips won't print on the package is they are rated at 960 lunens. That information I had to dig up from Phillips websites. The bulb I'm referring too is a 9005 or HB3. OEM lumens is 1750. So you see that the Phillips Diamond Vision is white but not bright enough to throw a beam safely. Sadly I took them out and trashed them. Worthless bulbs for headlight applications. Just make sure you know the OEM specs before you think your upgrading to a brighter bulb.
