Niroal I was looking at these today on Amazon. Just concerned that some people saying that they’re not lasting very long. They were £20.95 for 2. Were yours 9005 - HBC?

Just to add, with Halfords upgrade bulbs I have found lifespan to be very short, not had that issue with Osram & Niro bulbs are really easy to change!!!!

No problems. The other thing I have done is very slightly up the headlight aim as from factory mine was slightly low

I'm curious as how these bulbs manage to be low beam and high beam in one bulb, given that they're a single element bulb?

The car runs a shutter similar to how xenon lights work
