Brightness - Osram is brighter even though i used to be on the old Night Breaker( i presume the plus is equally bright or maybe even brigther )

 

Lifespan - can't comment as i'm on Phillips Extreme for only 3 months( my Night Breaker only lasted 4 months then my right side blow [:(] )

bro, did u buy from legitimate source that sold you genuine stuff?

 

my night breaker lasted more than 6 months in my old car... until i scrap it. the stock osram bulb lasted like 3 year + and hasnt blown, and it was decommisioned bec i changed bulb..

 

beware of fakes..

osram can last so long, if phlips are known to last longer, so i guess it can even go up to 4yr and beyond

My Philips lasted longer than Osram, Osram blew in 9 months. Philips lasted till now, legit bulbs both installed in the same manner, i.e. without touching the bulb surface with bare hands.
