    On My old 4wd i bascially upgraded the wires to thick wires and installed relays so to get as little voltage loss at the bubs.

    Same with bigger brakes and wider tyres I suppose ay? all wank factor...

    I'd run search lights as lowbeams if i could, would spot that roo jumping out on the road b4 you...

    These images speak for themselves. My car with the standard lowbeam holden bulbs, underneath that is when i replaced then with a 35watt 6000k HID kit

    So much fail in this thread no offence to any one in particular. What your looking at is a whiter globe. Globes with blue in it should be kept with the ricers as they do not have the light distance for lack of a better term.

    I have always used Phillips +80's since they come out. Wouldn't use anything else. Excellent vision. Even convinced the boss to put them in the work truck and he was extremely impressed as he didnt need to use the spotties as much. Also if the car never came with HID's factory they are illegal and a defect in any state unless extensive retrofitting is undertaken.

    in my opinion most narva stuff is rubbish especially their spotlights, at my work we mainly just sell and fit the Phillips +50 and +80 globes, and hella or lightforce spotties. gives me the shits when someone brings in a set of narva spotties with some wiring kit to go with it for us to install for them cause the wiring kits are just a pain to fit.

    Oh yeah also don't believe those "gas filled bulbs" that supposedly are as good as HID's as all in all there still only halogen globes.

    I bought some of those fancey
    bulbs and they cost about 20 dollars a peice, well **** me if they were not the shitiest ****ing headlight bulbs I ever got.
    I went to supercheap today and picked one up fro 5 dollars, it was 3 times as bright.

    Rip off city, keep the standards in, less you some kind of crocadile dundee needing big lamps on th3 highway ect...ect

    EDIT: Phillips are crap

    prob not a good idea using these unless you plan on upgrading your wiring, your car is designed for 55/60 watt h4 globes so if you put in those 90/100 watt globes you will eventually start having problems

    Narva Blue Power globes are great, just put a set in the VE SS Sportwagon and they are the bomb! There is a lot of expert talk out there and that's just what it is, definition of an expert - drips under pressure. Before you go madly buying blue light globes you need to understand the higher you go in the light spectrum ie blue it will appear whiter and brighter to look at but will not put more illumination on the road. You need to get lights that have the highest lumen rating. This will give you better illumination of the road in all weather conditions. The Narva plus 50's and blue powers are very good anything above that start to drop off as they go blue. Phillips plus 50's and plus 80's are also very good, remember high lumens is what you want. With regards to $100 for a set of globes not sure where you went but sounds a bit rich, I got mine for a lazy $47 from Repco. Yes they were on special, normal retail is $67 so I guess do your research, shop around. I reckon Narva Blue Powers are great!!!!!!
