Re: Head lights equal power of 2 candles


I wasn't sure you could get combo (spot & spread beam) in clear lens... but a quick check of the back of the Lightforce brochure proved me wrong.

You can get clear & yellow "combo", and clear & yellow "wide-angle", as well as a heap of other colours in "spot" - including infra-red?!


One of the fourbies from 4WD Monthly magazine has blue lenses on his 170's... I wonder what sort of light they'd throw... I bet the cops would love to pull you over if you had them turned on, too!

Re: Head lights equal power of 2 candles


Haven't been pulled over yet...

As for the lenses, as I said, you can get "wide-angle, which is the same spread as the "combo" lens, but more light is dispersed instead of some of it going into the "spot" beam...

I'm sure the Lightforce catalogue is downloadable in PDF form from their site...

[sign in to see URL] but not exactly sure where the PDF files are... That site above looks different to the site I found earlier in the year...

They're aussie made, and not sure why it has a "usa" in the site name. [sign in to see URL] is a computer place...

Ah, here we go:

Hi duxbac,

The bluevision philips are excellent in both low and high beam. I find they provide much more light output than the standard 55/60 globes fitted to our xtrails. Road signs illumination is much better as well with these lights.

Still chasing-up the yellow H3 on the web, so far I only managed to find "organge, all weather and the rest of those" which are not "true" i.e. French Yellow. Will let you know if I find any.

P.S. By the looks of it, they're not cheap either, as they're very hard to find.

You better be quick with putting your hand in your pocket, cause the $58 deal on bluevisions at Autobarn finishes this weekend 5/9 (this was a dad's day special price) so I bought them as a present for myself and thanked my wife and kids for it emoticon

P.S. I've read some excellent reports about the bluevisions on other forums as well, other cars as well, not only nissan's.

Let us know how you go and if you can see a diiference.

Make sure you change one at a time, then stand back and watch the difference between the two.

OK Guys,

I've managed to track down some yellow H3's on the web.

Strangely enough one of them is Hella (available from eBay), which Hella Australia doesn't seem to have in their range, so Hella Germany is the go.

Have a look and let me know what you think, we might be able to do a group order if there will be enough guys interested in any of these yellow H3's.

Not sure if Merc dealers carry those and even if they did, they would probably sell it 3 times more expensive, due to Merc's luxurious clientele emoticon

I can only imagine myself driving my wife's '90 corolla to a merc dealer asking for yellow H3 bulbs emoticon that's of course after I have a good look around at some merc's and open some doors, push some buttons, until the sales guy comes around asking "can I help you sir" and I say, yeah, I was wondering if you sell Yellow Hella H3 bulbs emoticon just kidding. I'd rather email Hella-Germany with this question.
