Bi-Xenons could mean your driving lamp and high beam both are HIDs but
different lamp source or means that the light is from the same source
(bulb) but with a switching plate for the DIM function. Which are you
talking about ?

I have just installed Philips Crystal Vision, it's white but the
brightness is still not up to my expectation. You will need to take some
time to adapt it's brightness.

I believed the stock bulb for S40 2.4i is philips Vision Plus. Anyway,
this CV bulb can bluff the on coming car that I am having
the "HID"....hahah....

Not sure on the Bi-xenons. The only thing I know is that Volvo Malaysia
seems reluctant (or unable) to bring it in for OEM upgrade.


Yea, I am from Ipoh, but living in KL for the past decade or so. I used to
use Philips CV too. Its white, but yea, the brightness is only impressive
when its totally dark outside.

I checked my stock bulbs before too. It said LL, so i presume its the
Longer Life version, and not VP. I could be wrong
