Just noticed one of my headlight bulbs has died, again! Can't believe how quickly the bulbs go on my focus, I just changed both dipped headlights to osram nightbreaker plus in September and they haven't really lasted very long. Can anyone recommend some decent bulbs that will last a bit longer but still be half decent at night? I was thinking of getting the osram ultra life as they are guaranteed for 3yrs, has anyone used these?

Halfords super brilliance.
Last for yonks.

I used to use halfords extreme brilliance blue bulbs, but found they would last 3-6 months....
Halfords even put a little disclaimer in there, saying something about using different gasses they burn hotter so wont last as long... cheeky!!
The ultra brilliance bulbs seem to be a good balance between brightness and longevity...

Haha, most people have a real big hatrid for them, personally if they light up the road and dont full on blind people i dont mind them, them headlights go really well with a hid kit, you can set the beam up so it looks just like xenons
theres a couple of vids on youtube
