Not on my 75 but on my sons Saxo.

I just got some Xenon bulbs off eBay for my sons car and they were just £10 inc p&p.

Vast improvement so they are either
a) Pretty good and good value too
b) Better than the ones that were in there which must have been c£$p!!

cheers

Bought a set of 4 Osram+50 as recommended by Auto Express, and was delighted with the "increased" light.

That was until I had the car serviced by the independent who's been doing my cars for 20-odd years, and was told a headlight bulb was out, and had been replaced.

With what, I asked, because I've got these superdoop etc...

Oh, just a normal bulb as specified in the manual, was the reply.

Problem is, I can't tell which one was replaced. Mind you, I did buy the Osrams on Ebay................

Just had both dipped bulbs replaced (one went and I thought the other one could not be far behind) and the difference in light outout is amazing, I thought the beam adjusters had gone wrong cos the reach of the beam has improved so much:lol: .

I did not specify any particular bulb to the dealer (an X Part service centre) and the invoice mentions GLB 499.

Sounds a bit like Unipart to me. Any one know ??
