Default For sale pair of Philips X-tremeVision gen2 D2S bulbs.

I have a pair of Philips X-tremeVision gen2 D2S bulbs that I bought for D3 when I had it but sold the car before fitting them and they have been in drawer ever since. Apparently there are a lot of fakes out there but I bought these on Amazon, sold by Amazon not 3rd party seller, I would assume they get them directly from Philips so should be genuine. And the pass Philips online authenticity checker. I think I paid around 100 for a pair back then but it looks like they are almost 60 each now. I think 80 collected or 90 posted should be a fair price. Link to current Amazon listing https://amzn.eu/d/4XgREh1

Just a gentle word of warning; I bought some very similar bulbs a while back and they too passed the online check, until I realised that both bulbs had the same ID; it should be unique.
In my case there were other clues in the quality of the packaging that didn't quite smell right, but there are a lot of fakes and they can be very good!
PS I did get a full refund.

Checked the numbers and on the box they are 3222 311 74361 and 3222 311 74362 and on the lamps it's 33A028 and 339L21. so that's a good sign and I would think Amazon would get them straight from Philips so less chance for fakes comparing to going through several different wholesalers/importers.

Something wrong with the forum, cannot upload pictures and cannot edit posts

Thanks for checking Ainars.

Bi-xenons use D2R on D2 but projectors could be D2S.

Would anybody like to make me an offer before I put them on eBay? It's 80% off final value fees on eBay so if nobody is interested, I will put them on eBay on Monday.
