Told you :) they're great brightness wise. Ive got a set of Philips Diamond Vision 5000k in mine which arent as bright but give a more icy-white colour so they match my angel eyes :)

Bulbs! Just going out in to the cold to replace the 3rd or 4th bulb in about 18months. All genuine OSRAM or Philips H7s, careully fitted. Is this common? Atleast I can do it in double quick time now with all the practice I've had.....

Not usual no it depends what bulbs your using some of them have high output but crap life spans. Particularly the bulbs with a thick blue coating because they require a decent output to shine through the coating

They are +90 or 100% but not maxy-p blue. This recent one may have been due to a vicious country road pothole, that bad I thought it must have bent the alloy but looks like only the bulb took the hit

Make sure aswel when your changing the bulbs that you dont touch the bulbs with your hand. use gloves or a cloth when fitting as this can greatly reduce the life of your bulbs

Summary


Should a customer express concern about repeated, blown headlamp bulbs on one
or both headlamps, the probable cause is a voltage spike in the electrical
vehicle system.


• NOTE: Fiesta 2008.75: It is not required to remove the headlamp
assembly on the right-hand side.


• NOTE: Kuga 2008.5: It is not required to remove the headlamp

To rectify this concern, an resistor wire should be installed on both
headlamps between the current electrical socket and the headlamp bulb H7.
