It depresses me people resort to these kind of cost savings, when cheap bulbs are tested by auto magazines, they're often found to be illegal and dangerous by spraying light and blinding oncoming traffic and not illuminating the road ahead.

But then I can't believe people pay for cheap tyres either, if you can't afford to run a car properly then get the bus.

Maybe not everybody is aware of these tests, I was just posting up a deal that was a lot cheaper than I had bought, wasn't sure of the quality that I bought the other day but I do know it was over 4 times as much for just a single bulb and this is a whole set.

Previous reports suggest they have a short life too. These days you have to take half your car apart to replace a bulb - you won't want to do that more often than necessary.

I like Poundland - but not for safety critical items like this.

I have been using these bulbs for a while now, & they definately DO NOT last very long.
Luckily the bulbs on my car are not that hard to get at, but if you have 1 that is I would steer clear of these.
They seem to only last me about 3 - 4 months, & the only night driving I do is mainly at weekends.
#7
I currently have one of these in my Audi. It is very very bright in comparison to the other headlight and probably needs changing. Fortunatly, I dont drive at night very often so my headlights are rarely used.

i avoid these personally

I've given up with pound shops for anything other than decorations and candles!

I've stopped buying the kids felt tip pens as they dry up in no time and, as much of the pound shop stuff is, proves to be false economy. The food is more exensive than the supermarkets more often than not.

If it's something that should be priced over a pound - in this case four quid - don't bother it'll be a waste of money.

Also as a word of warning if you do pay for bulbs advertised as 30% or 50% etc extra produced by Osram and Philips, you will be buying replacements after a year or so.
I purchased many uprated bulbs in the past and most failed in 10-14 months. Eventually I found evidence that the brighter the bulb the shorter the life expectancy (this is not advertised by the manufacturer or tested by magazines.)
Buy cheap or uprated and you are just as likely to be changing bulbs sooner than you thought.
#11
who cares about the cheapness of the bulbs and also whether its been posted before, good deal! beats 10 quid a bulb at halfords or something
#12
i wont be suprised if they are just as good. i bought some philips xtreme h7 which had 6 months warranty, which costs 15 for a pair. after 6 months one bulb died. i tried to obtain warranty as i still had two days to go till warranty expired. but philips just said no warranty and that i had not wore gloves to install it and i probably touched the glass which caused an early life failure.

there was a difference the philips were slightly whiter giving impression it was brighter but i honestly couldnt see it warranting the £14 difference. car is 3 years old so it wasnt becuase lights level werent adjusted.

I'd rather have a pack of these in the car for spares than risk getting hit by another car or pulled over by a copper cos a bulb's gone halfway home.....doesn't matter if they only last a week or two if they get you out of a fix....heat added!

Will these work in a Bentley Arnage? TIA.

As a spare in the boot I guess it's fine, but I always replace bulbs in pairs so always have a spare.
Funny those that have their bulbs fail quickly. I've been using philips bluevision (30%) and vision plus (50%) and they last around 3 years. I have a Saab and Volvo currently using them, and they both have their headlamps on during the day, so it's not like they arent getting used. Wonder if it's down to the quality of the electrics spiking that causes them to fail?
Not sure if all cars do it, but they both have electrics to switch the lights on briefly after startup to avoid a surge?

Has the Bentley Arnage got a user's manual?

I think the best use for these is to satisfy the legal requirements when e.g. travelling in France

I will have to ask my driver; he generally deals with the fleet.

My car (Volvo S40) takes a H7. I suspect hardly any cars require a H4.

if you want a good quality bulb, i posted this the other day but wasnt very well received despite being the best price ive seen for Bosch.

Quite a few do, incl Fiesta in this house.

A lot of cars require H4, every car I've owned has.

That said I would NOT buy these bulbs. There are some things you just can't afford to be tight about. Headlights are definitely one of them.

Actually, most of the "basic" models of the VAG range. So quite a few!

If you're using these as a backup/emergency only, then it's a good deal.
However I'd spend the few quid more and get a branded replacement bulb.

Surely Poundland would not be selling these if there was the remotest chance they were illegal or dangerous. I would imagine there are standards they have to comply with.
#28
Not just really cheap ones that have build quality issues, and how many people check their alignment after fitting?
I read paper copies of car magazines, but they're online for free now, so things like this show some bulbs produce beams outside of eu limits. Down to poor manufacturing causing minor discrepancies. http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/products/products/203974/bulb_test_h4_blue.html

I don't think there are legal standards on how long they have to last?
