As title.
H4 & H7 Car Headlight Bulbs - £4.99 for a 2 Pack at Lidl from today 16th January. Each pack available in Xenon Effect, 50% Extra Brightness or Long Life

I got the 50% Extra Bright bulbs as spares as I wasn't sure of the difference between these and the Xenon ones. I understand the Xenon may be brighter but can also blind any oncoming vehicles. Any advice as to what is best?

Other car essentials also available from today including wipers, car boot organiser, thermometers, car mats etc. See website:

Be careful of the temperature these cheap bulbs run at, they can damage the headlight fitting.

Xenon - not sure these give better light/vision ie if blue light cuts through the dark better than a white light, I have original Xenons in my Audi and have been flashed over the years (women don't seem to flash shame really!!) so I would assume they are just trying to be something they are not. My Xenons are definitely better than the 30% brighter bulbs I run in my Golf.

50% extra bright - would assume these burn at a higher temperature so would be subject to not lasting long (maybe like the Osram or Philips etc).

Long life - I think the title says it all really a standard brightness bulb that will last.

they are pretty good for the money as it is a lot brighter than standard bulb which cost more. I am still running these bulbs for more than 2 years.

However it is not good as osram night breaker which is damn bright but only lasted for 8 months which is annoying and expensive.

Is today not the 9th Feb?

yes it is but the deal is for last month

To be honest these bulbs are only ever a couple quid a piece at carparts4less all the time which has free delivery.

The Lucas H7 are like £2.34 each . The H1 and H4 are £1.62 each.

Philips bulbs are supposed to be the best but they are also far more expensive so you take your pick. But if you were that worried about your lighting you should probably have got a car with actual HID lamps in the first place

just bought a set for my bugatti

I fail to see your point. If you are willing and worried enough to spend a fair bit of money on much more expensive bulbs for your car in a first world country with mostly lit roads, then you should probably have gone the whole hog and ensured you had HID lights fitted to the vehicle.

That's the difference between maybe a couple quid a set, 20 quid a set, or maybe a couple hundred quid for a legal aftermarket HID setup (you have to be careful here). Or much more preferably, make sure they are on a car you were buying. If you happen to be particularly worried about that sort of thing you might want to think of it BEFORE you buy something. Common sense, perhaps?

But no, you have to draw some completely irrelevant comparison about a helicopter.

The fact is, the bulbs here are not exactly top end are they? So just buy some cheap ones off carparts4less, and get on with your life.

I don't know, I read your first post here and it made about as much sense as a Monty Python sketch, without the funny bits

the point I was making was really simple but I will explain it for the hard of thinking.

this site is to highlight good deals and bargains and not really to discuss people's motivations for wanting them or buying them as that is their own personal choice.

Your original comment about choosing a car with HID in the first place was both irrelevant and patronising to the gentleman as it was as much use as telling someone asking for directions not to start from where they actually are.
