Check your car headlight bulbs


With the weather as bad as it is at the moment it's worth checking all the bulbs on you car are in working order. You may even wish to upgrade your headlight bulbs if the stand bulb are providing a poor light output.

I'd recommend from experience either going for OSRAM Night Breaker or Philips X-treame bulbs. They both give off over 80% more light than standard bulbs with the Osram Night Breaker Plus giving off the most at 90%.

If your unsure of which bulbs your car need you can either check the user manual that came with your car or you can go to www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk who have a bulb finder which will tell you the bulbs needed for your car.

H7 Philips X-treme Power +80% bulbs on Vauxhall Astra


Thanks to Phil for emailing in with his review of H7 Philips X-treme Power +80% bulbs to his 2006 Vauxhall Astra.

"I have fitted a pair of H7 Philips X-treme Power +80% bulbs to my 2006 Vauxhall Astra and the difference in output between these and the standard bulbs is incredible.

With the OE bulbs, I was subconciously checking that my headllamps were switched on when travelling in the dark or on poorly lit roads, owing to the fact that little light was being thrown onto the road. When compared to other vehicles, especially those HID equipped, lamp performance was generally poor, with a dull yellowish light.

The X-Treme Power bulbs provide an intense white light, and project a solid, useable beam to beyond the focal point of the driver, making them excellent for negotiating dark, poorly lit roads.

These bulbs are ideal for those who have considered aftermarket HID kits, yet don't want to take chances with legality and fitment.
Certainly a worthy upgrade and worth every penny!"

Upgrade of MK4 Golf and Bora

A mate of mine was looking to upgrade his MK4 Golf headlights and didn't know what to go for. I recommended Osram Night Breaker's as I've used them on my MK5 and I'm really pleased with them but he didn't know what size he needed so I searched and found this diagram whic also covers the Bora as well:

From this we could see what we needed so we went and ordered a set of H1 night breakers for the main beam, night breaker H7's for the side lights and finished off the front lights with a set of Philips Silver Vision indicator bulbs. He was well pleased with the result and all in all cost £50 to make his car look loads better.

Xenon HID lights are the brilliant, blue/white lights that first appeared on luxury and high performance cars and are now slowly becoming available Extra on an entire range of cars, trucks and 4x4s. HID lights provide twice the light of conventional halogen lights for the ultimate in driving safety.
