    Default Rally Bulbs???

    I've never noticed them before, popped out to Halfrauds to get some temporary bulbs until I can refit my HIDs...

    They had some bulbs, they said for "Off Road Use Only"... They are 12v 80w bulbs. I bought some H7 for my main beam, fitted them and they seem great, nice and bright... but am I going to have any trouble with them? Legal? MOT? Power issues? etc. (The original, normal use bulbs are only 12v 55w.) I'm obviously hardly ever going to use them... but...

    How much brighter do you think they are? Not sure what the score it probably MOT time would need to think about it but as long as you got light go for it

    I think it's a personal thing with lights. I tried some white type bulbs in the 'B' but didn't like the light on the road so went for softer white, maybe what you get used to .....................

    I thought the larger problem with high watt bulbs is that they get hotter. And with the headlights being made of plastic well you can put 2 and 2 together

    Yeah, thats what I was thinking, they are only in my main beam, so shouldnt get much use at all TBH. Especially when the HIDs are fitted again, I never needed the main beam whilst I had those!
