Hi

I've just put the Osram Nightbreaker bulbs in my 06 T5. I live on the N Yorks / Cumbria border, so it's proper dark up here...

I got the bulbs and the wiring upgrade from Martyn (Upspex on here). Very helpful bloke with all things electrical. The wiring upgrade means you get maximum voltage to the bulbs themselves. You may not need it, as you might already be getting max voltage at the bulb connector

Dead easy to fit, all plug in connections. The bulbs alone are cheap enough and you've not much to lose in trying them.

I've lurked on here for 12 months now and picked up great advice, ideas and tips. Thanks all.

Matt

I've just done the facelift to my "old style" T5 using the new style caravelle lights and have wired daytime running in with dip beam and night looks like daytime using the original bulbs:eek:

What I would like to mention is that my new bulbs are nothing like I've seen before. They have 3 spade type connectors on the bulb holder so don't look like these are gonna be cheap when they blow. Unless its me being thick but they don't look like H1, H4 or H7 ones. Come on someone tell me otherwise:D

Hi I have picked up my T32 180 yesterday and drove it last night and can't belive how poor the lighting is. I'm going to fit xenons in the new year so they should be alright then. Lets hope I don't crash before then:eek:

I think they are fine especially if you have the spots too which I love when they come on at low speeds and cornering etc!
