    Are the halfords extreme brilliance blue any good? I understand they give a very very very faint blue/bright white, true? or do they just give of a very hideous and chav like blue?

    i thought all the blue tinted bulbs were only claiming to be 50% brighter, and not the 90% of the extreme brilliance, and thus there wasn;t and extreme brilliance blue one?

    anyway, got the halfords extreme brilliance, and they have a made a good difference

    I see nightbreaker plus have been announced, with 50% longer life. Anyone considering these? My original nightbreakers lasted 7 months or so. Currently on bog standard halogens but the penny pincher in me has a loud voice!

    I'll stick with Philips Xtreme Power if these candles blow in the Volvo.
    I reckon they're brighter than Nightbreakers..
    That, and I don't trust Osram for car bulbs any more :p
