Which Lights Are Better?

29 posts in this topic

I'm torn between Philips Blue Vision Ultra or OSRAM Cool Blue Intense. Both lights will be the H7 fitment (dipped beam) to see if I like them enough to buy the rest i.e. full beam and sides.

Which ones would you go for? Have any of you got pictures of the two?

Thanks!

What do you mean by "better"?

Brighter, different colour, trendiness?

I've fitted PHILIPS Extreme Vision dipped bulbs which do seem brighter, (supposed to be 100% brighter than the Ford Stock,) and the Blue vision are supposed ot be 30% brighter but give a Zenon headlight look.

For me more light is better but may not be for you.

I should imagine there much the same. I used Osram Nightbreakers previously which gave a much better light than the stock on a Mazda. It wasn't the 90% claimed but were much brighter. I havent changed mine on the Focus because I find them pretty good as they are.

It was between them 2 for me aswell but I went for these in the end. I used the bulb change guide found on here and it was brilliant, quite fiddly but the guide made it wasy so you shouldn't have any problems when it comes to changing yours :)

Agree, as much as I love HIDs and how great they look, I can't risk being pinned for them which would easily be done around here due to the amount of coppers!

First impressions, very happy with them. The pictures don't quite do them justice, but they are a lovely bright white light, almost pure white, with a tint of blue when looked at from an angle. I don't think you could get much more before going to HID kit so I'm very happy with them, they give good vision too, and the tint of blue is noticeable when reflected from signposts, numberplates etc. Very happy! Any questions then feel free to ask. :)

Thanks mate, I'm really pleased with them. Knowing what I know now I would quite happily buy another pair when these blow, which hopefully won't be for a while!

are they brighter than factory bulbs ?

I believe they are, I couldn't give you the technical differences etc, however I do know that they look so much brighter to the eye than the factory bulb, I was really surprised. By this I mean to look at. To drive it still feels brighter,but I wouldn't say they improve the field of vision by much if that makes sense? I kept flicking between dipped and main (which is still factory) and I know main beam is completely different, but it was so much yellower, which was another good way to tell the difference between them.

so in a way there brighter but not bright enough that you dont need the full beam ?

as long as there not less bright then i might get some as these are £14 and blue visions are £23

I done a bit of country driving with them a moment ago and I didn't find that I needed to use the full beam once. The give off adequate light for driving, but not as much as say the nightbreaker would, but that's a different 'style' anyway so it wouldn't do. For an Xenon style bulb, I found this gave off more than enough light that I needed to drive comfortably
