Hi,

One of my headlight bulbs has gone.

I have a Rallye (T reg 1999) with clear headlights. It appears that there are 2 types of bulb to get - one with double headlight and one without? I didnt really understand this - Do i have a double headlight?.

My sidelights are rubbish when i put them on. Could i have had the wrong bulbs in mine, thus leading to poorly lit sidelights?

The annoying thing is a replacement 'brilliant' bulb from Halfords is about

Side light bulbs are 501's the twin headlights have a bulb for Main beam and a bulb for dipped Rallyes normaly come with this type and thats H7 bulbs. Just have a look in the back of the headlight unit there will be one for the side light and two headlight bulbs. If there is one bulb only it would be a H4 bulb but doubt it is.

Yep, H7's are the ones you need.

Along with Philips Xtreme, Osram Nightbreakers are popular (I have them and would recommend). Lots of places online tend to give free sidelight bulbs when you order a twin pack of H7's.

wouldn't bother with the main to much, get your dipped done first, use them alot more than your main.

however after my experiences with high power bulbs they seem to blow alot quicker than standard bulbs.

my philips extremes went within about a year.
so my next set of bulbs will be a set of hid.

initial outlay is a little more, but bulbs last longer, and replacement bulbs are about the same price as a set of decent bulbs.

will still run good bulbs in my main though.

I've consulted with some people who said that it is a bit of a fire hazard having such high beams and could melt the plastic casing, and/or the wires. I've just bought some Osram Nightbreakers from Ebay.

The philips power extremes are better than the night breakers.
