Re: Bulb upgrade - Quick question

Brighter bulbs may help

also make sure the Headlights themselves are getting 12v or more feed from the connector to the light unit and 12v+ to the connector for the actual Light-bulb prongs, as a poor feed = dull light

Also are they in alignment with MOT standards
They COULD be pointing to high or out the way = What looks like poor light, an adjustment may help

its a 5 min job... a number of places dont charge for alignments... if they do, shouldnt be much more than a tenner.
