The Extreme White bulbs are a definite upgrade over the OEM headlights. I have noticed a clear improvement in both the high and low beam light pattern as well as brightness. Although I was concerned they would be blinding to oncoming traffic, I have yet to get the angry "high beam treatment" from oncoming motorists. Replacing headlights is never as easy as it should be, but overall the Forester lights are easier than most. Once you remove the air filter intake on the passenger side and loosen the washer reservoir on the right, there is sufficient room to perform the task with relative ease. It sounds like a lot of work, but it's really just a few plastic phillips head fasteners. The shopping experience was a huge letdown on the other hand. The original shipment was quite slow. Not a huge problem since my current headlights were all working. But the shipment was incorrect. The order was picked correctly according to the order, but AutoAnything's website specified the wrong fitment for my vehicle. It took multiple phone calls and repeated emails over several days to get the error corrected. Even after realizing their error, AutoAnything then wouldn't ship the correct bulbs until the original order was returned. Of course then the adjusted billing was incorrect, so yet more emails to straighten that out. I understand mistakes happen, but there is no question the errors with this particular order were poorly handled. In short, I am very pleased with the bulbs to this point. I have ordered from AutoAnything several times in the past, and I have never had any problems with the exception of slow delivery. This experience has certainly changed my attitude. I have not yet determined if I will continue to shop at AutoAnything going forward.
