Head lamps

Post by JacRo » Thu Jun 13, 2013 8:03 am

Not really a modification question but, how long should a standard headlight lamp last on my F/L Focus?

Osrams are very good, just dont get the Nightbreakers. They only last about 3 months. Get the silver stars.

This used to be true, but they have since made changes and the newer Nightbreaker Plus range are quite good. I know of a few people using them for 6-12 months so far already without issues

That's almost HID kit money - madness!

I paid R150 for an H7 set for the previous Focus. If I knew they were worth that much, I'd have taken them out and auctioned it off :lol:
