Totally agree, they should be banned OR made compulsory but as things are, your eyes get used to the "normal" lights and then some $%&* comes along with these and blinds you!
Agree with the comments above, these are a menace
Defo bad should be banned for sure

These bulbs ain't bright,think you must be thinking of hid bulbs,now they are bright.
Thing is normal bulbs are not up to the job and like you say if you are not use to them they will seem even brighter I suppose.

All cars should have hids fitted IMO
They are only a nuisance if you have not set your dipped beam height correctly, or you have forgotten to switch off your main beam. Then again I suspect mist of the negative comments are from those who don't know the difference between a xenon bulb (aka HID, characterised by a blueish white colour temp) and a regular halogen bulb. These are the latter. It is illegal to fit xenon bulbs into a car that is not designed to use them, as it requires self levelling.

Do your homework before posting and flaming.

Thank you.

You are more than likely talking about illegally fitted HID lights.

These bulbs will not blind other road users.
Nohing wrong with these if the lamps are adjusted properly- not to be confused with HID units, whch really ARE 'stupid bright'.

These may offer 'twice the brightness' but he eye being a 'logarithmic' organ, would need a lamp to be ten times as powerful to apper to be double the intensity (in eactly the same way your ear percieves 100 watts to be only twice as loud as 10 watts on audio systems)

Add to this the fact that either the filaments will probably burn out muhch faster and you might fry your electrics, I'd suggest these were best avoided.

They are still too bright. Nothing wrong with standard headlights.
I may well be referring to HID bulbs in annoyiny cars - please excuse my ignorance.
The last three times I've been in Halfords these bulbs have been BOGOF. I'd suspect this is an 'always -on offer'.
Worst lamps ever. You'll be lucky to get a month out them before they blow. And they're almost always BOGOF
These have been on BOGOF for well over a year, not really a deal. And from personal experience they burnout much quicker compared to the Phillip's version. Although Halfords do offer a 12 month warranty on their own brand bulbs (I know this as one of mine lasted 4 months!) the other lasted 14 months.
Lidl are currently selling 2 bulbs for £3.99, Aldi are selling a full bulb set including 2 headlight bulbs for £6.99 on thursday.

I bought some 6 months ago from the Caerphilly store, and they were not bogof at that time.

As for not being needed, personally anything that assists in aiding visibility should be welcomed, certainly not the actions of an idiot driver. They won't dazzle other road users so long as the beam height is set correctly, but that goes for the oe bulbs. Some cars just have poor factory fitted bulbs, as anyone who has a Skoda Octavia vrs will testify.

Again, not a problem if you use the bulbs that are DESIGNED for the car, you know, those bulbs that are fine for 99.9% of NORMAL people. I dont need to "do my homework" thank you, I know what HID's are, I'm quite capable of understanding WHY I get blinded, but no matter what excuses you give, I still get blinded just because some $%*% can't drive without brighter lights!!

Do YOUR homework before posting crap redundant arguments next time keyboard warrior

Great that they help YOU, **** the other drivers I guess?? (_;) Why do you need them? I get on just fine with "normal" lights, I just drive according to the road conditions, people who "need" these would benefit from this deal: hotukdeals.com/dea…621

I have already said that you be pushed to see any difference with these bulbs fitted,so I don't believe for one minute that all you drivers moaning about them know what you are on about,as it will be hid that is causing the issue.

I would love to know what is a NORMAL bulb ? hid headlight are far brighter than any bulb you can buy from halfords and they are fitted as standard to modern cars.They are far more saver due to the better light output and the beam is far more controlled as factory fitted ones by law have to have self leaving and washers,and the are fitted behind a projector lens which makes the beam very precise and cut of to a point so they do not shine at other road users.

The bulbs in the deal are NOT breaking any laws.You other drivers moaning are living in the past,and I find it very convenient that what YOU have fitted to your car is good enough,and I suppose your previous car was good enough with a man walking in front with a lantern.
Fact is lot's of people have poor eyesight and think that 'better bulbs' are a substitute for glasses....

keyboard warrion? oh the irony.

The link is for those who might wish to change the bulbs, not an invitation to play judge on whether they are legitimate or not!. As it happens, I don't use non std bulbs on my current car, I don't drive like an idiot, as an IAM member that wouldn't work. However, the std bulbs in my car are pretty feeble, and certainly not particularly useful when driving in Germany on unrestricted autobahn where a bit more light would be helpful. Many cars headlamps are indeed perfectly adequate, but not all are. If these particular bulbs are poor, and not especially cheap then fair enough, it's a crap deal! But please, if you've got nothing constructive to add in a positive way then please don't comment.

Ditto, my comment is valid, as is yours, you don't however have the right (or ability) to impose your opinion on anyone else. All I said was that brighter lights blind you, if you read you would see that I have no problem if EVERYONE had to use them, its the current mix that causes problems ;). BTW, the "unrestricted autobahn" is not a race track, if your car is not up to doing 250mph FOR WHATEVER REASON, don't do it, simple!!! (or do you call in and upgrade your brakes and fit a sports clutch too???).
Well that's stating the obvious! I have a car that has over 200bhp, which gives it the ability to achieve speeds that the headlights are not up to. In many owners opinions they're not even up to 70mph. That's poor design on a specific car, not a general application. If I thought fitting them would affect other road users, then I wouldn't fit them, so no definitely not a **** you attitude; far from it.
Not sure what point you are making about 250mph and an uprated clutch though, plus I never claimed a public road is a racetrack which is somewhat misleading.

Well I guess that went totally over your head... (_;) To be fair, you lost me at "IAM member", ROFL, I passed that test when I was 19, it wasnt hard, just full of di*ks who THOUGHT their "qualification" meant anything!!X) Come back when you can read and type/spell and we can talk, you're not reading what Im posting and youre missing out way too many words for me to bother filling in the blanks.

When you have to resort to insults, you lose and there's no need for such hostility I don't know you, nor you me, I simply AGREED with someone else that these things are 1. Not needed and 2. a bit of a PITA, that's just my opinion, I'm not on a mission

There was never any intention at the outset to insult you or anyone who choses to fit these bulbs, but I am allowed an opinion as are you. Lets just agree to disagree and keep things civil I can't comment on the deal itself as I am not familiar with bulb prices, I don't know why, but in my youth I was ALWAYS buying them to replace blown units, now they never seem to go?!?!
