Trade secret for everyone.

These guys are the importers for Phillips globes. And they do Narva as well.

If you live near a branch, you can go and buy direct from them.

Basically take autobarns price, halve it and take $5 off and thats their general price.

So you can get decent Blue Visions and Crystal Visions cheap, even Narva stuff.

I run the Blue Visions in the low and high beam, and they do an awesome job.

my car is on ultra lows, i think lowering a car affects the light beam, so ill try and adjust my low beams, and see if i can see better

Definitely does affect length of light beam.

Proper adjustment is to aim light 50mm below the centre of the blub at a distance of 5m.

If you aim them above that you'll be pointing away from the road and into drivers coming towards you... And you'd be no better off.

edit... You'd prob be best to get some of the +50 or +80 globes. Try compensate the height with a stronger beam.
