OSRAM Nightbreaker unlimited

Just dropped these bulbs in yesterday. What a difference they make!

You can definitely notice the improvement over the stock halogen bulbs. Plus the giant reflectors in the headlight housing help to give it a nice light blue tint. The light output is nice, and they really help improve things in low visibility.

Pick em up. They are worth it!

Well worth a try at about £12 to £16 a pair.

Although I have a stock of unused bulbs from the past, I probably need a spare set anyway, so will experiment with these. Previously I have not found similar 'improved output' bulbs to be much different.

I put a pair of Philips Xtreme Vision +130 bulbs in a couple of weeks ago. Definite improvement observed.

Bit tight swapping the bulbs (scraped fingers), and I'd recommend placing a medium length screwdriver head against the back of the old bulb when wiggling the connector off - otherwise the bulb just wobbles about.

Yep, Nightbreakers are definetely an improvement. The light is whiter and brighter, and lights the road 10-15m more. It is a bit of pain to remove connectors for the first time. The easiest thing to do is to hold a plastic trim tool against the back of the bulb and wiggling the connector slowly with the other trim tool.

How have peeps found the longevity of these bulbs?


I have been using them in my present car (H1) but they only seem to last about a year and that's in the main beam which doesn't get the same usage of the dip. The dips have H1 HID in them which have been fantastic.


Before we start World War 3 about HID conversions, I have projector headlamps which work properly with HIDs

H4 Nightbreakers lasted three years without a problem in my previous Mini.

I am at 24k and 19 months - all good.

A fair proportion of my time driving and the lights will be on. I live in Scotland and have the over sensitive auto light function.
