    I tried brighter bulbs, and found little difference. I'm running picc's, I think! The one's used for rallying.
    The only thing I can say is they last for ages. 4yrs and they're still going strong.

    I've got the diamond vision mate and think they're spot on, really white and match Crees well.

    Cant be ar5ed with the hassle of MOT to be honest washer jets etc, ive run aftermarket hids and factory standard hid on previous cars ive owned , nothing compares to factory xenons regarding their service life , just wanting a cleaner light than what ive got at the moment. the night breakers are for full beam, going for phillips side leds as i hope these will last , as most of 501 wedge led fail early , which can be a pain in the ar5e to keep changing. used to use PIAA 501s but their prices have gone through the roof over the years. bought a set of piaa wedge leds in 1999 and they lasted through til 2005 and 6 cars. Im looking long lasting kit, unsure of the H11 as ive never really bothered with fogs in the past as they are always off, only trying these as ive wired the dusk setting on DRLs to dipped beam , if i did put the fogs on with sidelights only ive got a situation where the drls are right next to yellowish halogen fogs
