Not sure how this is cold. Are they +50% brightness? What's the quality like? Do they come in a storage case?

Do you know what, the less people that use these "brighter" headlight bulbs the better. I drive at night and it really narks me off the numpties that fit these type of bulb. Usually Audi or BMW drivers, bunch of dorks

Breakdown kit (rope, triangle, torch, high vis, rope), first aid kit, small folding shovel, bottle of water and extra spare fuses also.

You're getting confused with Xenon/HID lights which high end cars tend to come with.

So have I, but they can't reduce the risk of a car piling into you on narrow country lane at night before they get there or in an area with no phone signal and you have to walk blindly in the dark until you get one. It all helps to survive.

That's Xenon HID headlamps. The whole headlamp unit is different and they dont use this type of bulb.

OCD?
lucas ones are excellent quality , and cheap as chips , they last so long
Spare bulbs kit is compulsory on the Continent, as are warning triangles and other stuff, so check before you travel. Breathaliser kits in France too?
jgtuk

OCD?


Not really, It's not like I pack it all up every time I drive the car. It's just in the boot in a bag all the time. There's a growing number of European countries that you must carry most of the stuff to drive legally. I believe the French make you carry two breathalysers and a high vis for every person in the car.

Would save lives and time if more people were prepared for the unexpected.

Also a glass hammer/seat belt cutter, but that's because my windscreen is 50% thicker than most cars.

Beware - I bought the Poundland ones, they lasted all of 5 minutes!!!
Has anybody actually used the product posted by the OP. If so, any feedback would be appreciated

Only if the boot carpet is shadow marked so you can put everything back in the correct place.
I carry most of those and also clothes and blanket in winter, it's tough here in the south. Spain requires a Hi Vis for everybody in the car and also that in a breakdown you put it on before leaving the car, traffico policio can be particular about this.

Lidl headlamp bulbs used to be marked Tesla, which is an Osram brand, and were physically identical, except for the labelling, to Ostram Silverstars, they also appeared to be as bright to me. That was some years ago though, things maybe different now

The problem is the drivers, not the bulbs! Having said that they were probably factory fitted (for 'just another £1000 sir').

Tell that to Aston Martin and Range Rover. Fool.
As inferior as German items. I get sick of this running down of British stuff. It's all snobbery and costs us jobs. We created the first programmable computer an air breathing rocket engine and thanks to fools not supporting UK industry we end up selling our companies to foreign competition.
These are good lamps, nice find mccririck (been to lidl today ). The #1 reason for lamp failure is user error - some enclosures are tricky to change (Vaxhaul / Renault etc) and people get greasy finger prints on the glass of the lamp - these in turn create hot spots when the lamp is in use and "pop". So if your new lamp lasted 5mins you were either very very unlucky, or much more likely need to learn how to change a car lamp.

Use a cloth and clean any finger prints with meths prior to turning them on. As for the chap complaining about audi / bmw HID's - just wait till you see the all LED headlights on full beam - goodbye retinas. (less lumens but much more focused beam)

Not British and hardly quality, especially a Range Rover that tends to break before its warranty expires.

They are both quintessiential british marques (even thought the parent companies may be foriegn) and are both made in the UK. Prehaps Rolls Royce would have been easier for you to understand. As for Range rovers breaking down all the time your information is about 10 years out of date (the twice removed generation of Freelanders springs to mind). They are now very very good cars now - hence the reason they are in huge demand from the rest of the world. Now go away troll and stop stoking anti-british sentiment on HotdealsUK

Hit a raw nerve have we? Get your facts straight: The last generation Range Rover is one of the most likely cars built between 1997 and 2009 to suffer expensive problems. They are in 'huge demand' due to perceived quality and perceived Britishness.

Do you even know what a troll is?

Define British. Both are designed, developed and made in the UK (except a few AMs assembled in Austria) so the 'owners' are really just investors. Jaguar the same of course. Many of the parts are sourced globally but that's the same for all brands. Jaguar regularly comes out in the top 3 of surveys for reliability and customer service (vs BMW, VW, etc which are mid ranking). Latest RR is widely reported to be 'the best all round car in the world'.

JLR survived but did not thrive under BMW and Ford ownership but with Tata taking a hands off approach while putting plenty of investment in they are a runaway success. They've gone from circa 60,000 vehicles a year for many years to over 300,000 now and plans to double that. Around 80% for export too. 160,00 Evokes already sold in a little over a year.

Britain really does have the talent but in the case of automotive had been starved of investment for 50 years. It takes a billion pounds to bring a new car to market!

Did you realise there are now as many vehicles built in Britain as there were at the height of the home industry in the 60s/70s?

Still, as has been said, there's a core of the population who will hate anything BECAUSE it's British; wouldn't happen elsewhere. The French and Italians still buy some pretty awful products because they are loyal to their home producers.

Its not a raw nerve. I just object to people (like you) that make idiotic sweeping comments (e.g British products are largely inferior) without justification that have little or nothing to do with the topic. If Britain and its products are that bad, leave or at the very least remain silent.
