    Default dull headlights

    Hi dont know what the hell has gone wrong. I have changed over my 03 vectra headlights for continental ones. everything went well i thought,put all right bulbs in the right places ect. Went out driving in it tonight and the lights are not bright at all. Had to put my main beam on to see the road and was still not as bright as what my normal beam should be cant think what could be wrong anybody got any ideas
    cheers DS

    Are they set too low, or even too high. Have you put the same bulbs back in the new lights.

    Ask a local MoT station to perform a headlight beam test
    Personally, I think the 3% is too low for the Vectra and always comes in for criticism

    First thing is to check they are sat correctly as they are quite easy to put in wrong.
