At least from the spec sheet, they have the most lumens in the ideal visible temp. Unless there is another X factor, they should be the best option.

No complaints so far with the OSRAM CBI's. Installed a month ago after O.E stock bulbs were replaced. Great cutoff and nice hue without the uber blue look.

Purchased from reputable seller on Amazon for $98 shipped and came in a sealed package with OSRAM verification digits for online authenticity lookup. Couldn't beat the price...

Did you end up buying them from TRS? they offer a 2-year replacement warranty on the XB's.

Nah, Amazon for the Xb, trs for the CBI's. Even with the replacement offer I'd rather do it once and know I have the best bulb and not worry about it. Up to you though.

On the TRS site now, and just watched a couple of their comparison videos... has anyone tried either the Phillips 85122XV Xtreme Vision Gen2s and/or the Osram CBBs? Im leaning towards to the new CBBs, and was looking for any user feedback. TIA

Just bought off amazon, $98. They have the seal and passed the check through osram online, both for the packaging and the bulbs individually.
