Need feedback on H11 OSRAM Nightbreaker Plus/Ultimate

As title says can you provide your feedback good or bad on:

H11 OSRAM Nightbreaker Plus
or
H11 OSRAM Nightbreaker Ultimate

which one you have/ like /don't like.

Trying to figure out if I can live with halogens or go with Xtreme HID kit.

I'm looking for most cost effective/ practical / plug and play solution.

I'm in NYC area so streets are well lit for most part.

Re: Need feedback on H11 OSRAM Nightbreaker Plus/Ultimate

Why are you ruling out the Phillips Crystal Vision Ultra halogen bulbs?

I bought those bulbs (low beam, high beam, and fog light) for my old Limited (non-HID) because I read they were the best rated halogen bulbs for the money. $31.59 a pair on Amazon right now.

The Phillips bulbs were definately whiter than the stock bulbs, a little bit brighter, and were still going strong when I traded the vehicle in even after almost a year.

Re: Need feedback on H11 OSRAM Nightbreaker Plus/Ultimate

I went with the Sylvania XtraVision low beams and JW Speaker LED fog lights.

Amazing.
The blend of pure white LED withe yellowish halogen low beams works great at night.

Not as good as HIDs, but still better than OEM (especially the fogs).

I didn't feel like paying $30+ for a pair of headlight bulbs that only last 1 year.

Had GE Nighthawks in the wife's RAV4. Nice headlights for $30 and they lasted 2 years, but they don't make them in H11.

Re: Need feedback on H11 OSRAM Nightbreaker Plus/Ultimate

I tried different H11 bulbs before I did the H9 conversion. IMHO its the best option if you want to stick to Halogen's. Google the conversion or see my post on it. It's the best option and the cheapest too.

H11 to H9 Bulb Conversion
