Really dim dipped headlights
Got my headlight bulbs replaced today as they both went within a day of each other.
Got my pants pulled down at halfords for £47 fitted for their ultra brilliance range H7 55w bulbs, haven't had time to do it myself working 90 hour weeks! :(
Upon removing the originals it turns out I was running 80w blue bulbs without having the wiring upgraded! so some of it has melted around the connectors, on the drivers side the bulb was actually soldered onto the cars wiring loom, nice!
Anyway the light out of the dipped beam is pathetic now, I can't see where I am going driving so these are clearly not road safe
This photo is actually showing more light than is coming through...
High beam, this seems fine...
Clearly something wrong here, bulb the wrong way round maybe?
And the headlights in question, no idea what they are as they were put in by the previous owner
What should I do here? I don't fancy putting 80w bulbs back in as the wiring clearly can't take it
New headlight units maybe?
Any advice would be appreciated as my brain is fried from working far too much
Slightly tempted to just go get a A5 quattro on finance haha
