Farmington Hills, MI... Philips Automotive Lighting North America, a division of Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE

According to Michael Scheiven, Director, Aftermarket Channel, "Performance customers want the best, brightest, and highest technology light they can get - and X-treme Power is it. Our new bulbs not only deliver an aggressive style that makes any car really stand out from the crowd, but also provide a dramatic increase in nighttime driving visibility.

They're ideal for any driver who's interested in making nighttime driving safer."
