Improved technology delivers even whiter color and brighter beam than their original
Farmington Hills, MI... Philips Automotive Lighting North America, a division of Royal Philips Electronics (NYSE:PHG), has introduced the new, improved technology Philips CrystalVision Ultra headlamp bulbs. The new, improved bulbs deliver even whiter color and brighter beam than the original CrystalVision bulbs.
