Just wanted to vent my anger towards these stupid headlights. I've paid $100 to buy them, high/lows and high beams, and they're worse than my stock headlights. Was driving in the rain the other night with them in (the first night I had them in actually), and I couldn't see a thing, I wasn't even sure if my headlights were on! I went back to th place I bought them and they won't do anything about it, so I've wasted $100 on globes that I'm not going to use, and that I can't sell because I'm not going to tell someone that they're good when I know that they aren't.

So what did I learn? Don't buy NARVA Blue Power headlights, and don't listen to shop assistants, do your own research and then go into a shop to buy what you want.

100% more vision my a$$.

Contact Narva directly, I'm sure if you speak to the right person (this is the key) and be persistent enough, they'll swap 'em for some +50s or something. :)

I've had problems with Narva in the past, and they weren't unfair with helping me out.

I've already emailed Narva, got a guy called Steven (can't remember last name). The thing is, Blue Power are a combination of Plus 50 and Arctic Blue, which means they should be better yes? The guy told me that in the email (that they're a combinaton). He said they'll be willing for me to swap them for nother pair, but they'll just be the same, so why would I want to do that? :S

Well arctic blues never lasted long in the beginning, due to them having to burn brighter and hotter to create the same amount of light through a blue filter. +50s are decent globes, I'm assuming they burn hotter without the blue filter, they don't have the low temp white look, but you can see quite well.

So if he's willing to swap for +50s I'd go for it, but I'm not quite clear on if you meant he'd only swap for another set of Blue Powers, or if he'd swap for any globes in that price range.

Either am I. All he said was they'd be willing to swap, didn't specifically say for Blue Power or for same price etc.

I've talked to a mate and he said that Philips headlights are better anyway, Philips Blue Power or Crystal Vision.. Agree?

Yeah they seem to be a bit lower temp light than the Narva counterparts, they paint everything a shade of... I guess you could say a mix of light purple/aqua.

They look great from a bystanders point of view, but I've never driven with them.
