    Default NIGHTBREAKERS PLUS -my test

    Evening all!

    Decided to share with you with my impressions about changing my standard horrible bulbs into Osram Night Breaker Plus. I was quite sceptical about them, but when they're fitted now and I went for a test drive I need to say they're BRILLIANT!!! Dunno about their vitality (in theory they should last out way longer than the previous model), but looking at the visibility improvement, they're worth every penny.

    Here are some pics taken yesterday and today. Standard above, Osram below, also pic with one changed (on right) and one standard. Maybe it helps to make some of you decision of getting them.

    Cheers!

    I totally agree! i fitted these myself this week and think they are worth every single last penny!

    Went from standard bulbs to the nightbreaker plus. The only thing to watch for is make sure you buy the PLUS ones, and the previous ones had lifetime issues.

    Other than that the brightness difference is brilliant, Can clearly see it above.

    Well, at this moment I am so happy with first drive that it's hard to say what would be better. Of course, they could never compare to afl's, but this is a huge improvement anyway.
    @ScotsDragon: 120% sounds impressive, but the price is double

    I had the NB plus bulbs for 13 months and thought they were the bees knees. Then in the space on 5 days both blew. Decided to go for hids 35w 6000k. The NB plus's were good but the hids are far better in every way.

    Never been flashed or pulled over. NB plus are an interim upgrade IMO.

    Glad they work for you but it's hids for me despite the legal issue.

    Get HIDs, I tried everything including NB+ and nothing compares with the 6000k HIDs!! I can now see where I'm goin and don't have to guess where the kirb is!

    Sent from my mind using the force.

    Unfortunately HID's are illegal in whole EU, in Poland you may even have your car papers taken away if the police catches you- that's what many my mates say. So I prefer not to risk, and for the moment gloat over with my new bulbs
