I bought some indicator lights from them and they where intermittently faulty. They came on and then went off, came on and went off, came on and went off.
The fun of watching people replace headlight bulbs for the first time and then them inevitably blowing out almost straight away because they got fingerprints on them...
The last ones I got from there actually overheated and blew within weeks. I had handled them carefully as you should etc avoiding contact with the glass but they were rubbish.

The replacements I fitted are still going strong. As a result I wouldn't advise getting these. Either they are complete rubbish or the bulbs are already contaminated. Maybe I had a bad set but either way never again.
They might not last long and the beam geometry might be kack.
Mine are still going strong after 8 months, might be hit or miss. But might be worth a go for a pound

You need to get out more.
Some cars can take a while to change the bulbs on so I would recommend buying something more reliable like Osram Nightbreaker Plus, I have to change mine via a flap in the wheel arch so it's worth the extra not to have to do it often.

yeah,if you buy from Halfords they will fit them from £6.99 each, not bad for a 2 minute job?

that might be true, now what's the name of a well known auction site? ;-)
I bought these just before Christmas as I happened to be in pound land the day that my b
Damn iPad ... Yeah, bought two sets of two, since I was aware that there may be issues. First one blew within a day, since the glass was about 15 degrees of the normal and it must have heated against the rim of the light. The second one is still going strong and by strong I mean weak. It has about half the output of my other budget bulb that I got in a kit from amazon about a year ago for two quid. The other two bulbs are even more warped out of shape than the first one. Whilst driving on the motorway this weekend at night I could see naff all. I will be changing these as soon as I can get the cash to get some decent high output Bosch ones. They are totally crap ... But given they are 50p each instead of a tender then you essentially get what you pay for

I did search for the deal prior to posting, but did not find it, well done you for finding it.
Also, they are slightly longer than the previous h1 bulbs I had, so you may have fitment issues with your vehicle.

I'd like to see you fit Ka mk1 bulbs in that time, you'd need a beadle hand.

or maybe a megane my daughters coupe cabriolet's the same and these bulbs never lasted long.
I had these and they blew in a few days. Waste of money even at £1
Agree with others these are rubbish, I've tried 2 or 3 different ones (same lamps different packaging) all lasted a few weeks the max light output was rubbish as well. Just buy the budget ones from Aldi/Asda etc now and they are much better for not much extra cost.

No I have an Astra and partner has a Ka, Look like I've been attacked by a rabid animal everytime I have to change the bulbs.
These are a worthwhile buy

Why people spend thousands of pounds on cars to keep their families safe and then buy parts from Poundland is beyond me.
Cold - both of a pack of these were dim to start with then blew within 8 hours of use, actually melted at the filament end. Poundland should withdraw these as they actually give the shop a bad reputation!
Now using Wilkinsons Ring ones at £6 each. These have lasted and are bright as any standard halogen.
Try these even better price and various others you may need at some point:

Yep rubbish bulbs that don't least long though maybe worth keeping one in the glove box as a get you home spare in case a headlamp blows. The number of cars I saw yesterday driving with one headlamp was scary and you are liable for a fine if caught. So that would be my only reason to buy this rubbish.
poooer quality
