    Thumbs up Osram's Hyper H7 clear 65 watt bulb - Where to buy

    Has anyone found these for sale anywhere in the UK.

    I want a bit more light for my Signum and these seem on paper, to be the best option. Before you ask, I cannot fit a HID kit as it is a company lease car.

    I'm sure someone on this forum must know where you can get hold them
    Thanks in advance

    have you seen this:

    you should also mention, these have the life of standard H7 bulbs, about 500 hours.
    Our stock H7's are Long-Life bulbs that have a life around 1000 hours.

    Whyever not? If you're comtemplating changing the standard bulbs for the other type bulbs, what's the difference between doing that and fitting HID bulbs?

    because its not his car, hids are much more to buy than std bulbs and its not his car.

    hids aren't legal and because its not his car - he may feel its not worth the risk.

    Towerman - have you contacted Osram for a stockist?

    I also did a search of the net and found nothing for "Osram 64217".

    Keep us posted mate.

    nothing - it was taken from a website.

    I just bought - Ring Xenon Max after a really good write up in Redline magazine.

    rrp - £25 a pair - I paid £13 a pair plus £1.5 postage.

    bought two pairs to change both - also bought a pair of 501's to go with.

    When you weigh up how much you spend on performance bulbs, a HID kit works out to actually be good value for money.

    Does anyone enforce it - NO. Lets face it, the law is an ass where HID kits are concerned. Providing you don't dazzle anyone, fit overly blue ones, and are generally sensible with them, then plod aren't going to hassle you.

    ps, save the lecture for someone that gives a ****
