Good Bulbs

39 posts in this topic

Just had to replace the left main bulb again, this was replacing an Osram set and another quality pair before it (same headlight I might add), just put the stocks back in, out of touch with this a little but is their a good recommended set etc to look at these days? Was thining of replacing the side lights again as well, have cool white led bulbs, but you know, change is fun!. Also was thinking os some new blue footwell leds if anyone has any ideas about them as well.

Halfords sell Prism w5w LEDs for about £10-15. They're fairly decent aswell. Like I said dont base your prices on the cheap crappy ones you get on eBay youre lucky if they last a month. Stick to the branded LEDs more expensive but you shouldn't need to change them again once fitted

:s I'd much rather risk the Fleabays than pay all that for SMD's >.< most are fine

You can get CREE's for £10

You can get the Philips ones cheaper aswel if you shop around and you can get 6000k ones also. Cree is a brand lol I was sick of the fleebay bulbs failing just an excuse for the police to pull you for a failed bulb if you dont notice. Cant argue that the Cree bulbs are or arent any better than the Philips ones or even the prism ones because I havent used the Cree but they always get good reviews and ive used both the Philips and the prism and both are great quality and look great too

They're a lot brighter than standard SMD's, can't even stress how much until you try them, but as a guide, I can use them for reversing and they're a lot, lot brighter than the standard reverse bulbs, and those are what would be sat in the sidelights :P

In fairness I have HID's now lol, but they are stupidly bright; I have them in the fog's and they're brighter than standard somehow.
