This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

H7 headlamp bulb, will cost you over £8 in Halfords. For £1.53 you can keep a couple as spares. I have used these in both my family cars and can vouch for their longevity. They are also just as bright as the ones they replaced. Free delivery too!

The led lamps will cause havoc on your dash because the car works out if the electrical system is working properly by measuring the current going through components.
The LEDs take less current so the ECU thinks there's a problem.
Most modern cars have to have their ECU's reprogrammed for LEDs.

The eBay ones are unbranded and I have previous good experience with these from Carparts4less. 10 is also a bit excessive for me but thanks for your contribution.
This is probably better value unless the lamp quality is inferior.
You get some fuses too.

Ive had a lot of cheap bulbs from various sellers on ebay, and they tend to last 5 minutes before popping. They're cheap for a reason.
When it is freezing cold outside apparently filament lamps suffer from thermal shock. By that I mean the sudden change in temperature from freezing to hot when switched on.
To help counteract this you should put the side lights on first (especially if they are next to each other) for a few seconds before putting headlights on to warm the headlight up so the shock isn't as great.
Was told this years ago and I've been doing it ever since.Can't remember last time I changed headlamp.
Fact or fiction?
Any scientists or electrical engineers passing through....
A couple of random ones Here -I tried this type and they are no good as they do not project any light forwards .

Here - This type claim to work but from looking on various forums they are hit and miss weather they work on all light units.

What this man said.

Be prepared to shell out for the coding of the ECU or see if you can find some error free CANBUS ones that have been tried and tested by others.

If you can't always access this price point a emergency bulb kit from The Range is a good buy at £5 which is still less than Halfords and my local Range was/is open after Halfords closes.
Tesco have these at £3 for 2, decent quality too.Halfords are about £10 for 1

No, but when I YouTubed changing the bulbs in my car I couldn't believe how complicated it was. I'll follow your advice, but what if the sudelights go because no one is warming those bad-s boy up too?

Side lights are cheaper and usually easier to change than headlights.
Also they are lower brightness, use less power and so the heat generated when switched on is less.
Lower chance of failure.
Do Poundland still do 2 for £1 of these?! They were actually alright!
Ignition on, headlights on then start engine will mean bulbs powered initially with about 12.6 volts, once the engine starts there is about 14.5 volts so if the theory that warming them up works go for it. The EU decreed that headlight bulbs should replace sealed beam headlights so we can do a repair at the roadside easily, unfortunately some manufacturers of cars have given very little thought to this in terms of access, I believe the Renault megane has to have a wheel removed as access is through the wheel arch. I spoke to a chap from Halfords who said they have a list of cars that they will not offer to fit bulbs to.

Just bought one few days ago from local motor factors for £3.
Over £5 from eurocarparts (same company) so heat from me. Also has good reviews.
Ffs ordered this at wrong address. Bow will need to ring them to change

Neolux boxed bulbs are usually made in India. Cheap for a reason.

They may not be a big name brand but as I said in my description I have used these in my family cars and consider them decent quality. Each to their own.
Still available!
