Good price but had these and one lasted less than a year. Had a replacement set and same again. Moved to different brand now
Now people are replacing with led so these halogen ones are getting cheaper. Led ones are much more efficient if you can fit them properly as they come with fan and huge heatsink

But you do get a diesel/petrol bill? Unless you've discovered energy for nothing, that is?
They are rubbish!!!

I thought LED's ran cold as i know 240v ones do ?
I fit different wattage and size leds in houses most days and none of them have heatsink.
Tell a lie some of the kitcken 8w ones do but even after being on all day they are still cold so i wonder why the 12v car ones need a fan and heatsink ?
Im not saying you are wrong, im actually curious mate
Just to let you know these dont last more than 6 months i had to replace mine twice and so difficult to replace in my car waste of my time and money !
Hmm, got these for £10 from the warehouse deal but might send them back, as they don't sound very reliable...

Same experience here - 6 months then 'pop'. Nightmare to change on a Volvo.

You do that. I'll put you forward for the Darwin Award. Good luck.

Bought these and lasted less than a year.
Bought a couple of equivalents from eBay for less than four quid.
Still going strong 6 months later but I've made a saving already.
I love it when I get blinded by idiots who have necessarily bright headlights, set up incorrectly, when the streetlights are off (because its bright enough with the Sun up and all) and have them set so that instead of lighting up the patch of road in front of their face (thats how they drive), they make me feel like I'm being interrogated by the gestapo. Also glad to see that these bulbs only last a year - which explains why the same idiots only have one bulb working, and possibly why its set to 'blind'.
Buy hid bulbs off ebay,never been stopped by plod,or failed mot
Bought them 2 years ago, they still going strong! Lucky I think
1990 called, it wants its filament bulbs back!

The drivers coming the other way will disagree, just buy a decent car with proper lights.

You do sound thick enough to drive around with no lights on though.

Care to elaborate?
Was tempted but think I’ll pass. PIA to remove from a 2003 focus. Dont fancy doing it again any time soon.
?Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) ?
I've had these, will last a couple of years, maybe longer. I found mine were more likely to fail if I left auto lights on. They would turn on as the engine was trying to start, and the strain wasn't good for them. Turning that off helped life.

Why the capitals?
Had a set of these in my car for over 2 years now and still going strong. Granted, only about 10-15 minutes use per day as I have a short commute, but as they are the only pair of upgraded bubs I have ever fitted then I can't comment on their durability vs. other brands.

Cos you didn't realise that your bulb energy is not free. Dur.
Had mine in over a year. Great bulbs so far

Youve failed to comprehend, explain how you save money by having more efficient bubs in your car.

Higher energy bulbs equal more fuel cost which you don't seem to grasp.

You are making a far bigger deal out of this than is necessary - the difference in decreased fuel efficiency between a couple of bulbs is so negligible as to make no difference in practical terms.

So an alternator is dynamic and changes its performance based on electical needs? i assumed that the belt turns at a constant speed.
