2010 - 1.8 vvt Hybrid

Looking for recommendations for aftermarket replacement dipped-beam halogen bulbs

I would like an upgrade from the stock oem halford type bulbs - as I'm looking for brighter/better-performing ones.

BUT - they must last.

I hear many things about the top end ones (200% brighter etc) but then the reviews suggest they only last half as long.

Seeking recommendations from fellow members! Hoping to open up a discussion about said topic.

As far as I'm aware, the current +200% bulbs are HIDs.

The trade off for brighter halogen bulbs is shorter life - the brighter the bulb, the shorter the life. For example Philips Racing Vision +150% bulbs have an anticipated life of 200 hours.

If you want to compromise, go for mid range brightness which will give longer life - +100% brighter rather than +150%. Eg Osram Nightbreaker Silver +100%.

Hi, 

there are no halogen bulbs that particularly can be the brightest and to last long, actually the brightest has shorter life, I can recommend to you Philips Eco Vision long life, these are definitely the longest lasting halogen bulbs available that actually provide a nice lighting ahead , just a bit better than oem, don’t expect led performance 😉, I use them and only change once or max twice a year, I drive a lot and 90% through the night. Now for performance, Osram Night Breaker these are good for bright light ahead however does not last long, just a bit less than oem, but depends how you drive your car and when, day , night.  These two are my favourite. 👍

To be honest - I don't do much night driving.

200hrs only - the cost per hour is way too dear is it not?

I have good experience of Philips ecovision in the H4 format in my Aygo and would suggest Philips H11 ecovision here since it has good output and lasts very long. Ours has been going strong for 4 years now in spite of it being used in a DRL form (always on with the car day or night) as required in this country.

Who produces the oem ones that toyota fit themselves?

Philips Eco Vision I believe is the oem of our cars, and I keep using them,  best life performance ratio IMO.

You won't believe this. Went into Halfords & in the clearance section I happened to find a halogen bulb. 

Had to take out my 'malfunctioning' bulb to compare - they weren't compatible.
 

Refitted my 'malfunctioning' bulb - to plug the hole.

Hey presto - its working again.

Lesson - sometimes a bit of a jiggle & a bit of a juggle - and then alls well in the world.

Most of the original bulbs in our cars are Philips long life marked as Philips LL. I do not know if they are actually ecovision.

Yes they are actually Eco Vision it’s just a trade mark name or whatever but the article numbers much the one of the oem bulbs.  I stick with those, long life plus the light colour is nice enough to me.

Is it true that over time these halogen ones get dimmer?

 

Are we talking a few % or are we talking significant loss if performance?

They do a bit when are on its end of life and once you notice they get dimmer they will burn out and you will need to replace the bulb .

I purchased these PIAA bulbs (sign up for 25% off price via email) and they are excellent. I have 2013, with the upgraded headlights under warranty and they make a big difference so much so fitted a pair in the Aygo as well
