osram bulbs

Post by JLawson90 » Tue Feb 13, 2018 10:03 am

looking at replacement by dipped & main beam with osram night breakers .. I presume the below would fit?

Also, would it be fine to get the same set twice (dipped & main), or should I be looking for a different strength for the main beam?

a bit of both really .. I do want a nice white shade of light not the horrible yellowy colour, but not at the cost of quality light output, it doesnt have to be totally amazing, just at least as good as standard hopefully a bit better

do the ultra 5000k still give a decent light output? and im guessing these would therefore fit? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-H7-ULTRA-P ... SwWxNYtq~A

also, do you not rate the osram nightbreakers?
