If interested on original Philips Crystal Vision (CV)or Vision Plus (VP),
can go to PH auto at Sea park . PJ @ 03-7877-2288, selling
reasonable price with warranty than others shops in KL/PJ
CV - H7 selling rm 160 pair included 2 small W6W bulds
VP - H7 selling rm 84 pair
Was fitted CV on my ride now, happy with it. as the 4350K bulb are
much brighter than my original Osram bulb

in those days, it was either Blue Vision (for the white look) or Vision
Plus (for better illumination).

the Philips bulb are alright on urban road and in fact better than original but for
rainy time i will on my fog light as well so it is better visibility but dont expect same
if your concern are about better visibility and longer light beam at sud urban night
driving better get Vision Plus otherwise Crystal Vision will serve you well

I think Crystal Vision is similar to VP, i.e brighter, 'whiter' light. I
actually installed the Diamond Vision bulbs on the S40 initially (looks
really neat from the headlamps, but poorer lighting in my opinion).
Luckily, the shop lady allowed me to swap it for Crystal Vision. Looks
whiter, but still yellowish, but brighter than my stocks.
All said tho, no substitute for a real xenon system. Sigh..if only Volvo
Msia made it a cheaper option here.

believe when it comes 2 automotive lighting, i've tried all.
like richard says, if brightness is important 2 u, then go 4 vision plus. if looks, go 4 crystal vision.
currently am riding on bj union hid. works very well. bright, concerntrated beam and great looks. no prob to date (touch wood!).

is your model is 2.4i? since the stock bulb is 55w but HID is 35w, any

low beam.. and it can only be readoff by the dealers...

error when diagnostics are done??
If that were true, I will get a HID now!
