According to Headlight Bulbs, a lighting review and consumer product information site, the Osram Nightbreaker is among the best and brightest of all legal Xenon lights available. According to the review, the Osram Nightbreaker topped the list of all bulbs tested in regard to brightness, style and performance when it came to improving the light emmitted from the vehicle’s headlight beam.

Reviewers were also quick to note that the Osram Nightbreaker helped improve the reflection of white street markings, helping to increase safety.

Osram Cool Blue
For those who prefer a hint of blue to their head lights, Osram Cool Blue is the best Xenon bulb for use on public roads according to the Headlight Bulbs review and Cool Bulbs, another online automobile lighting information site. According to the reviews, the Osram Cool Blue bulbs offer some of the brightest lighting possible for coated bulbs and do not violate the laws that are put into place to avoid excessive brightness.
