most things you put on your vehicle needs to be adr compliant, most insurance companies do not go looking to see if your lights are adr compliant unless they are the cause which would make them inspect it.

in some cases just putting custom rims/tyres on can put you in the same boat with adr compliance if they do not match the requirements.
Makes sense.

With lights, its probably more of a problem and an area that would be checked especially if night driving. More so if your country driving and a collision with another vehicle occurs - people will jump of anything to avoid blame and a country road during the night and bright headlights is definitely one of them - temporary blindness is something that is often used... people will use anything.

So it turns out that the bulbs/LED's in the vehicle need to be ADR approved to meet Australian roadworthy standards and apparently failure to have these installed can lead to defect and insurance dramas (I'm guessing if your involved in a collision during the night, or if a police officer deems your headlights too bright). I spoke with a friend over the long weekend who works in motor vehicle insurance and they said it would void the claim on a vehicle if it didn't meet the Australian Design Rules, so basically the national standards for vehicle safety, anti-theft and emissions. So because of that! I have purchased these: X-tremeVision Pro150 car headlight bulb 00569428 | Philips
Please let us know your thoughts on these. Certainly would be good to have better lights. While the ZB lights are OK they're certainly not as good as those on my VY which are also better then the lights on my wife's VE

Shall do, I made a correction to the link with a reference to where I bought them from as opposed to the Philips site (in case others want to grab some, since they are on sale), as they are selling them with a $28 discount and free delivery (don't forget to get a further $9 off with their promocode which is APRIL10) - they are dispatched from Sydney with full tracking info and these are classified as ECE certified - road worthy.

How are the new bulbs?
