    Their ballast are now rated 50w, I'm exchanging it for the Osram CBI, breaking it in currently. It's so bright compare to the old Philip 85122 revision version of the 85122+. Probably 20% brighter as advertised, but it'll get brighter and whiter after 20+hrs on em. So far I got about 2hrs on em. Love it!!! worth every penny...

    No one sell it! there's a guy locally in westbank that sell a two pair of Hella Gen 3 that can be boosted at 41w, 43w, 46w, 48w, 50w and 55w.
    He's selling a pair for $140, not sure how much more he charges for boosting it. Maybe $40-$50 more if it was me.. since the parts needed cost $20 plus alot of soldering works so $20-$30 labor sound cheap and reasonable..

    some update!

    Just got the Osram CBI 5500k to replace the Philip 85122 5000k

    I just pick up a pair of ES300 Fog lights with Koito H3 bulbs for $40 that I will use to retro the fogs. I might grab another pair from the same guy to retro the fog on my 99 civic too..

    So I pick up a few set of foglight to play around with. starting with the worse to the best; ES300, Infiniti QX4, BMW X5 LED Fog, then Audi A6 Fog lights.

    ES300 vs. Audi A6

    Color flicker from a fog really???


    Infiniti QX4 similar to IS300

    Got dimensions on those Bosch and The A6? Hoping they fit my 99-00 civic fog openings.
