Light em up

Hey

Got a question about 7" round headlights

Been looking through the sheds and found a few people using the reputable brand headlights like Hella and Narva.

My question is, how do these compare (As in brightness and light spread) to the rather cool looking DEPO lights like I have fitted?

Regards

Is by far and away the best. The quality of any lighting product is a result of the precision of the optics built into it. The shape, finish and material used to make the reflector are the things to look for. In my opinion the Hella unit is the only one to use. Narva does not come close. No name asian/Indian product is a waste of time.

I bought cheap asian ones, and they were a complete waste of money. i had to modify the metal bucket they sit inside so they would fit. the clips that hold the globes in are hopeless. and after finnaly getting them in and working, i took them to work to be aligned with the headlight aligner. thats when i realized the focus was terrible, I feel sorry for anyone who has to see me coming at night time even with low beams on. If i had of known how bad they were i would of sent them straight back. The reputable brand ones may sound overpriced, but they are worth every cent.

I'm due to replace my old sealed beams in my HQ Tonner soon. After reading all of the above I don't think I'll be buying any of those cheap Chinese rubbishy ones....I'll head off to Autobarn tomorrow and price the Hella 7" H4's.
