Hi i have a pretty bad sight out of my headlights. When i purchased the car 3 years ago they were pretty good but now they are slowly getting really bad.

I know i have to replace the headlights themselves cause i tried the sand paper trick and for me it didnt work.

What do u guys think of these headlight globes????

the blue and white globes do make bit of a difference but i dont think the globes would be your problem of bad lighting, usually the main problem with falcon headlights are the reflectors (silver backing behind the glass) wear out and turn to a rappy yellow color which makes lighting very dull, if so you can replace just the reflector without having to replace the whole headlight.

Once you've got your lenses & reflectors cleaned up, i've found narva plus 50's to be decent.

I used to have Narva standard 55/60's in my EL until 1 blew so i looked at better globes. Ended up getting Philips GT-150's, a set cost $46.00 and i must say the light is alot whiter and travels further than standard H4 halogens. Im yet to do my yellow lenses again and will get the GT-150 H1 globes for high beam soon.
