Question Headlight Globes 30% or 50% Brighter.

These headlight globes that are supposed to be 30% or 50% brighter. Are they as good as claimed? I am shortly driving from Perth to Brisbane and would like more frontal light. Without buying spotlights etc.Cheers

Definately worth the money. They produce a whiter brighter light. Just put a set in the TE.
Cost $39.95 from Super Cheap auto for the 55/60w bulbs that go in the low beam position.
These things were about $60 a set when released a few years ago

They are better. I am using the Artic Blue one's and the light is much wighter, not sure wheather they claim to be 50% brighter or 50% more usable light?

Re: Headlight Globes 30% or 50% Brighter.

Yes they are much better and also much whiter, They are about $12 each for H4 Plus 50's. I use them in all of my cars and think they are good with light being about equivilent to 100w Headlight globes but without the extra current draw

Definitely a good move - they may well not be 50% brighter but they were a huge improvement on the BA stockies.

Has anyone tried those BMW globes that have the blue tinge to them? I've heard they're meant to be good.

Re: Headlight Globes 30% or 50% Brighter.

I haven't seen the BMW globes but I have fitted Plus 50's to both my main (hi/low) beams and driving beams and am very impressed with them. Interestingly, I dunno about all Falcons, but mine came with Plus 30's fitted from the factory (they were Phillips brand - didn't say Plus 30 on 'em or anything but I looked up the part #'s on Phillips web site and they definatley were), even so, going to Plus 50's still made a significant gain in brightness, whiteness and light range/throw. I also put some Cool Blue parking bulbs in to match up - the original ones looked very orange but the Cool Blues are much brighter and whiter and match the look of the Plus 50's.
