Old Jack has suggested other Phillips ones before I think but the code he mentioned doesn't exist (at least anymore!) so I don't know anything about that.

Hi Jim,


You are correct, Phillips no longer do performance +120 globe but they do do a +100
https://www.philips.com.au/c-m-au/ca...alogen#halogen.


Problem with performance halogen globes is there is no "free lunch" you pay much more for them and they last much less time. In high use conditions such as if you drive around with low beam on all the time you will only get 6 to 12 months life from them. Phillips last the longest about a year followed Osram. I now use Osram Nightbreaker Plus and buy these online from Powerbulbs, normally $40 a pair but they are often have 20% or more off so that is when I buy them. I currently am getting about 9 months out of low beams using them every day for about 1-2 hours a day. So that is between 270 and 540 hours of light.



To me the extra cost and hassle of changing them is worth it as there is an improvement in both distance and light intensity.


Once you get over 4000K colour temperature, visible light drops off rapidly so they may look brighter to look at but actually there is far less light on the road so night vision is impaired.



OJ.
