What is your opinion of the Nightbreakers? I put some in my Juke and my initial impression was favourable, but having used them a bit more I find I would still like more fill at distance. They are a definite improvement, but I may look something better.

I have the night breakers but now have a dilemma, my led side lights despite ordering pure white on 3 different types , still have a blueish tint and now i`ve fitted the drl leds they are a good match with the sides,(looks fantastic in the dark) but my nightbreakers are still yellowish, so have been looking today at Philips and Osram `Blue` options. Anyone had experience with these ?
Thanks

Not personally but friends have tried both. Have heard good reports of the Philips Extreme bulbs but disappointing results from the Osram Blue. I think the Philips are probably similar to the Nightbreakers. This is in terms of how well you can see to drive rather than how the lights look from the outside of the car.

Agreed. The options I am considering are:1. Higher wattage bulbs2. HID conversion3. Additional spotlightsMy thoughts are that it is difficult to find a legal solution with options 1 & 2, whilst option 3 would look like a boy racer and thus fail to pass the "acceptable to wife" test.

Careful with option 1 - does anyone know what the headlamps are made of? If they are plastic, then the higher wattage bulb will produce more heat and it's a question of whether the headlamps will take this extra heat without melting - it's possible they will be OK, but if they melt, it certainly wouldn't be a warranty replacement, aside the fact that I believe construction and use does make this illegal.

You could upgrade the front fogs - I don't know the specs of the lights, but if they are true fog lights, then replacing them with spot lights would do it. That may be legal and easier.actd2012-11-12 19:24:20

the headlamps I think are plastic.I have to say that I personally am totally against aftermarket HID kits as I dont believe any are made to the same parameters as factory fitted and I am also a little fed up with being blinded by such ill fitted items

I believe after market kits are also illegal unless they have auto self levelling - I don't think many after market kits have this, so they'd fail the MOT, and technically could invalidate your insurance.

Agreed about the legality problems with HID kits. I haven't seen any that I am confident are legal.Most high wattage bulbs are not legal. PIAA do make some that are E-marked and legal. I don't know of any others.I wasn't aware of the problem with melting plastic headlights. It sounds like something to be wary of so thanks for pointing it out. Has anyone tried this in a Juke? Got good or bad results to report?
