Full Version: Headlight Bulbs.
Ford Owners Club - Ford Forums > Ford Models > Ford Focus Club

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...
i have got these bulbs fitted,[url=""]Philips X-Treme Power H1/H4/H7[/url], the brightest ones i could get me hands on. But i havnt seen them in comparison to the osram bulbs.
i have had them fitted for about 7months now with no problems!! (touch wood) lol
I dont know what most of you think to this, and dont say im an a** for having them :) but i bought hid's for 40 off ebay (new) had them in about a year and still going strong :)
a** LOL
Sorry couldn't resist.

Was thinking of these myself.
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
Thanks for the replies, I think I'll try the halfords bulbs.
ive had these in before for over a year and they were pretty good have to say i dont mind hids just the txxxs with 100 watt rally bulbs in that blind you
