Not need hope. Osram Night Breaker Laser Next Gen is brightest halogen on market for now which proof many tests.I hope the blue super halogens work for you
Osram (Sylvania in North America), Philips, General Electronics and probably Hella and PIAA. Everything else cheap noname made in basement junk (for their price)A couple of brands I tried didn't even match the stock halogens in my F-250. Very disappointing
Thinner wire in bulb - brighter shine - shorter life. No magic.IMO if they don't take more power than the legal 55W they can't be more than slightly brighter. There is no magic. This site compares several of the supposed best which are marginally (30%) brighter: BulbFacts | Halogen Bulb Chart - Comparing Halogen Bulbs in Reflector Headlights
Most on site is true, but with Night Breakers not agree. It's legendary bulbs in Europe and every generation slight better than previous. +100, +110, +130, +150, +150 gen 2
LED is new technology and it is future in car headlight. But I accept it only if it factory LED. It's may be used if you have newer car with lens headlight, put nice quality bulbs and adjust headlight if necessary to be sure not blind oncoming traffic. Usually this did less than 1% drivers. In Russia if you put chinese no-name LED bulb in reflector headlight - you will be stopped in evening time any police vehicle and loose drive license immediately for 6 months. Totally agree.The real magic is in LED replacements where even the least expensive are over twice as bright (150+%):

I used Allas in my F-250 and they are WONDERFUL. I didn't really need to but since I like to quantify everything I used a LUX meter on my phone to confirm the astonishing improvement.
Are you have newer Rav? Or aftermarket headlight? H1 and H7?Just today I received new inexpensive H1 & H7 LEDs for my RAV4 and will be doing the same tests on them when it's again warm enough to go outside at night.
Please put Rav 25 ft against wall and make picture of beam pattern
After compare how it's should be
Interesting. 08 Rav4 with 9012 A bit problem with 9012 they don't have a grey coating on glass end of bulb so they will blind a bit traffic. But really who care, I blinked high beam for oncoming on road last generation civics and previous gen corollas with blueish headlight when they start be more popular on road, thought that guys drive with high beam.You should go with the 9012 conversion. The 9012 is not plug and play but there are many video on Youtube showing you how to trim the plastic tab. The difference between 9006 and the 9012 bulbs is the tab. So if a small piece of plastic is trimmed off the bulb will fit perfectly. It is very easy to mod. They are cost effective and they are 50% brighter than the stock halogen. I recommend the Philips Long Life 9012 and I am quite happy with these. As for blue halogen they are horrible and give less light.
Just note 9012 bulbs are not a common bulb and most store will not carry this. Online retailers are the best place to get it such as on Ebay or Amazon. Here is one that is cheap.
Need try, Thanks
