(Video 1:54) The Philips X-TremeUltinon LED headlight bulb upgrade provides significantly better forward lighting performance than standard halogens.
On this application, a 2012 Fiat 500, standard halogens are particularly anemic, and past use of performance lighting upgrades has not provided an acceptable bulb life.
The LED upgrade should address both concerns, with an estimated improved performance of as much as 200% and a life estimate on the order of years.

Lumileds introduces Phillips X-tremeUltinon LED headlights to Canadian market
Phillips has launched its X-tremeUltinon LED headlight in the Canadian market. The new headlights produce a brighter, bolder light that illuminates the road up to 200 percent more than traditional halogen headlights, delivering up to 6500 K arctic white light for high-end styling that is noticeably whiter.
X-tremeUltinon LED products also are available for some motorcycle, scooter, ATV and snowmobile models.
“Our team is particularly proud of the new X-tremeUltinon LED products. Not only are they a superior product with longer life and more durability but they will also bring a sense of style and sophistication to any vehicle,” said Dave Illes, director of sales and marketing, North American Aftermarket, Lumileds. “Given the unique Canadian landscape and lighting season, Canada is the perfect place to launch this brighter, bolder product line.”
The X-tremeUltinon LED headlights are equipped with Phillips’ state of the art LED technology, a powerful bright light with superior light diffusion that puts the light precisely where drivers need it. The new products also have Safe Beam Technology, a uniform and accurate beam pattern with the right cutoff point to reduce nighttime glare.
In addition to increased illumination and style, the X-tremeUltinon LED headlights last longer than traditional halogen headlights. X-tremeUltinon LED products also are more durable than competing aftermarket LED headlights due to Phillips’ AirCool and Airflux Technology that cools the headlights and fog lights. The products also have an IP65 enclosure that protects the lights against dust and water splashes.
Phillips currently offers six SKUs 9005, 9006, 9012 H4, H7 and H11 applications.
