    Default 90% Bulbs review

    Well as you know I have fitted some 90% H7 bulbs in the dip beam. They are a little brighter than the Phillips Blue vision they replaced, but I would say they do not seem that much brighter a little maybe, they are not as bluey/ white as the Phillips, The beam doe,s go quite a good distance when driving in the country lanes, I don,t know if they appear brighter to the on coming traffic, but I did not get "flashed" by other drivers, When I pulled up behind a car at the petrol station I did notice an orange tinge on the outside of the beam that was shone on the car infront, I have never seen that with other head lights. All in all not a bad bulb, but in my opinion they are not that much noticably brighter than the Phillips Blue vision. I might just get some of the Phillips "equivellent" they are supposed to be a lot better and try them out, I can always put these bulbs in the main beam.

    Ed, when I went from Blue Visions to Diamond Vision felt quite a difference, if you are planning to change them again, try Diamonds pretty good IMO

    Read this weeks auto express, The +90 night breaker got quite a crap rating compared to the Philips X-treme.

    Quote from the site" The German firm’s rival to the Philips X-treme (Page 67). It promises 90 per cent more light than standard, plus a whiter beam. But on our tests, the Night Breaker bulbs weren’t consistent enough. Although one gave the best result after the X-treme products, the other trailed nearly 50 points behind. "
