Oops.......they will probably last you in the region of three months and you'll need a new set. There are quite a few on here that have had several sets of these bulbs and wont use them again; me included. When they are lit they are fantastically bright and very white in colour; they just don't seem to last more than three months in a GP though.

And do the Halford ones work if you try in another vehicle or connected to a 12v supply? as not unheard of for bulbs to have been banged about and filament damaged.

Hmm not true 'Gas Discharge' bulbs as fitted to the VTS though and I wonder how long they will last at that price?

Hi chaps!
One true thing is that Osram night breakers won't last, yet they are bright - and white. My c4gp -07 "burns" about 2-3 pair H7 every year and about same amount of H6W front park bulbs. Never H1 long beams even we use them a lot in Finland. And Never any of back bulb (of course not the led ones) except couple back register lights.

I've just bought some ice-blue H7's from Redline. They are really good. Intense white, with the very faintest hint of blue. So impressed that I've ordered the H1's and H6W's to match.

I'm thinking of doing the H11 spots, but the manual tells me I need a key. Any ideas?

Nightbreakers have a poor reputation for longevity in the Coupe and Hatch to it will be interesting to see if the "2nd Generation" are any better
