I like the idea, but for practical purposes this is useless for some cars.. for instance for my car to get to the headlight bulbs I have to remove at the very least a load of wires out of the way to get to the back of the headlight, even at a garage it took them approx 20-30 mins for ONE bulb replacement on the passenger side headlight, on the drivers side they would also have to remove other stuff to get to the headlight which would take even longer. I can however see the point in having rear light bulbs handy as they are easy to get to if you need to.
Haven't voted either way on the deal as it seems a good price considering that a single bulb for my headlight is approx £8.... but would advise people to get it done at a garage if they have cars like mine that are hard to get to.. the garage only charged me for the bulb and fitting was free.
Could come in handy this though if you also have RAC or AA etc so that they could come out and just replace the bulbs fuses if you already have them.

takes me 2 minutes to change mine, nothing in the way, no cables just need a spanner to remove the light unit.

anyway I ordered 2 sets as handy to have.
#3
Great price... particularly considering you pay more for just one headlamp bulb bought separately!
#4
For anyone who ever drives their car abroad this is a bargain as it's a legal requirement to have spares in many EU countries.

Plus, I've paid more than this for one brake light. Hot
#5
For this foreign driving lark do you need to know how to fit the bulbs or does one just have to prove that you have them in the car?
#6
just have them with you.
#7
bit of a long delivery time 2 to 3 weeks
#8
I paid €18 for a lightbuld at a German Services so really wish I had one of these. Also it illegal not to have spare bulbs (I didnt know this at the time). Regardless of legality when abroad etc, is poo cheap for a load of bulbs.

Back in the old days when you could fit the bulbs, you could understand this rule. But in these modern times when it takes 3 mechanics 30 mins to drop the bumper from the front of your car and fit a front headlight bulb, you need to question this out of date rule!

Good deal anyways!

By the way, you are also supposed to have a High Viz vest in your car in Germany. Not sure about other countries. The French Police are very hot on British Drivers not having the Headlamp Diverters too.

Thats all for todays EU Motoring advice.

#17

#18
Bought a set, will come in handy at some point ! :)
#19
Also now some countries require two warning triangles in your car, one to place at the front and one at the rear of the car, Spain is one of the countries, and beware now if driving in Spain, a new rule was introduced that the policman who dished out the lowest number of fines in his division, has his wages reduced by 300 euros a month. So as the goverment is looking for money, beware of falling foul of any driving offence.
#20
ordered at £2.95, hope i get one. thanks
#21
Just ordered some - thank you!
#22
Received 2 sets today from Amazon, 2 more ordered for another car, I paid over £12 in Halfords 2 weeks ago for 1 H7 bulb :(

£2.95 is a bargain for all you get in this kit :)
#23
Not voted as this is not really a new deal, as it was posted 2 weeks ago and is still live and the Amazon order is 3/4 weeks.

Clicky

Ordered. Estimated delivery 18 Feb 2011 - 25 Feb 2011.

Bit of a long wait, but that's fine if they're spares and you've no need for them sooner.

So you won't vote because it doesn't suit you? In that case I wont vote for X-Box games as I have a a PS3, I shan't be voting for cheap boys clothes and toys as I have a girl. I won't vote for shoes that aren't in a size 10 as other sizes are of no use to me.

I have voted hot even though I won't be buying one.
Thanks to OP.

Sorry, I think you're missing the point entirely. As OP said, "must for travelling abroad, keeps you road legal in the EU" and "Essential for European motoring"

A bulb kit is a legal requirement when driving in most European countries. If you are driving in Europe you need a spare bulb kit and at the price, this was a very good deal. It's not about whether some cars have difficult bulb access or not! So it doesn't really matter whether you "like the idea" or not; the French cops certainly won't care!

I used to have a Ferrari 355. To change the battery you had to jack the car up, remove the wheel and remove a metal cover inside the wheel arch. This doesn't mean I wouldn't vote on a scorching deal for a battery just because it's difficult to replace on some cars!

Sigh.
