- Osram Nightbreaker/Philips Xtreme Vision etc., car bulbs…
They made an improvement to the piss poor headlights on my honda accord, but then again attaching a couple of birthday candles would also have made a difference. They were still pish, just not as pish. They won’t make crap headlights into great headlights.
I solved the problem by buying a new car with bixenon headlights, **** me I can actually see 🙂Posted 1 year agoEcky-ThumpMember
I’ve had the Ring +130 H7 (dipped) in both my Mundane-o and the Mrs’s Golf for about 6 months now. In both, it’s a significant improvement over the stock bulb.
NB twice as much light doesn’t mean you can see twice as far, unfortunately.Posted 1 year ago
They are noticeably better. I’ll settle for that.scaredypantsSubscriber

… oncoming drivers wincing and squinting into my stupid-bright dips ??
It’s an arms race akin to the mtb nightride lumen wars – once some cock dreamt up the full-intensity dipped light we were always heading only one wayPosted 1 year agodemelitiaMember
I’ve just this evening bought some GE megalight ultra 130 for my old mans Passat. I’ve had nightbreakers, racing vision, xtremevision and a couple of other ‘high performance’ type bulbs in it over the years. They’ve all been an improvement, I generally go on whatever does best in each years auto tests. This year it’s the GE’s.
Ive found they do dim over time and see them as a consumable. I change them out before they go and stick one of the old ones in the glove box in the box the new ones come in just in case.
I bought the GEs from powerbulbs.com, they’ve got a 20% off offer using 20FEB as the code. I was going to buy them anyway so that was a nice coincidence.Posted 1 year agoscaredypantsSubscriber
kelron, it does help a bit with oncoming traffic in that you can still see a little bit more of the area in front of you
blinding them back – that’s what I was saying up there about nightrides; you can’t have brighter lights and not affect other users. If (big if) they’re well set on dip then it’s OK on a flat smooth road but hitting a bump or cresting a rise and you’ll definitely affect oncomng drivers morePosted 1 year ago
