    Default Headlight bulbs what do you think ?

    I'm looking at getting some Osram Nightbreaker headlight bulbs.
    H1 11.25
    H7 14.29

    " Same write up for the H7 "
    Osram Night Breaker H1

    BRAND NEW!

    This product is sold in a pack of 2 bulbs.

    New from Osram - Night Breaker delivers up to 90% more light on the road for optimum visibility and safety and a 10% whiter light for minimal glare and optimum comfort.

    • Latest high power technology
    • Up to 90% more light
    • 10% whiter light
    • Silver cap design
    • Fully approved for road use in Europe
    • UV Friendly - safe to use on plastic lenses
    • 55w
    The top product for active and safety-conscious drivers.
    With its new NIGHT BREAKER™ family of lamps, OSRAM is breaking records for the power and colour of headlights. Compared with standard lamps, they shine up to 90 % more light on the road and produce 10 % whiter light. Their maximum performance make NIGHTBREAKER™ lamps particularly attractive for active and safety-conscious drivers.

    I have the Nightbreaker H1 bulbs in my full beams. They work well. I also had Philip's X-Treme H7 in the Astra, again a good job.

    Prefer the Osram though, they have a blueish coating on them which makes the light marginally whiter than the Philips.

    Only thing to note is, if you're doing high miles with the lights on these 80/90% bulbs will only last half the time of a standard bulb.

    Just about to put some into mine for the front fogs (H3) and have got Ring Xenon Max for the full beam (H7) as well to go in. Hopefully these will tie in nicely with my retro fitted VX Xenon lights

    You have a pre- facelift so you need H7 for both the main and dipped beams.

    Even with HIDs the lights on my car are only just about adequate. Projectors aren't a great job IMHO.
