    Terrible headlights - recommendations for bulbs?

    Thanks. I am yet to see the fittings, I will obviously soon do so to change the bulbs. I am only really concerned with dipped beam for now as that is the one that causes me serious problems driving at night. If I am impressed I might upgrade the full beam lights too. I have actually ordered the...

    Did you get much life out of them? Did you run lights on constantly (DRLs)?

    Terrible headlights - recommendations for bulbs?

    Fair comment, although I would have thought bulbs may respond differently in different cars, reflectors, driving styles etc. Not much perhaps, but it would be nice to see which I prefer, which may not just be a function of light output. I am also pretty sensitive to light, I can get terrible...

    Terrible headlights - recommendations for bulbs?

    Hi Richard, thanks very much that's interesting. I read a lot of reviews about the Nightbreakers, both the Unlimited and the newer "Lasers". They certainly sound fantastic for light outputm, but most poeple seem to find they only last 6 months. I am therefore thinking of going with the Ring...

    Terrible headlights - recommendations for bulbs?

    I have just had a look, it has an adjuster under the headlight switch. The attached pic is exactly what it looks like. I take it that means I have halogens? Not actually sure where that puts me, does it mean I have no choice but to try the aforementioned aftermarkets like Osrams etc?

    Hmm. I was having a butchers on ebay and found these 2x OSRAM D2S NIGHT BREAKER UNLIMITED HID BULBS MERCEDES R-CLASS R 320 CDI 01.06- | eBay They say "HID" in the title. I suspect that's the usual fraud crap you get on ebay where they are trying to pick up searches for HID when they are not...

    Thanks. I assume these are not HIDs, just out of interest, do you have any experience of those and are they brighter?

    Wow, thanks both of you. I am looking at both, either of you have an idea which is brightest?! (I don't tend to believe the marketing fluff when I have real people to ask!) thanks again, much appreciated

    Hi all. I have a R320 which seems to have TERRIBLE headlights on it. I have tried two replacements (done by local MB specialist) so the standard MB options are not helping.I know the LED ones are frowned on now, MOT failure etc, but I don't much care about that so long as they are not unsafe for...

    Name that part in 2.....!

    Thank you very much for this. I didn't really understand the image but I think it led me under the bonnet to the right place, not accessible without bonnet shut which makes me wonder how it flew out when washing the car! But it fits perfectly, centrally as a rubber stopper for very top edge of...
