    Looking to upgrade my Passat dipped headlight bulbs Halogen H7's for something (hopefully) better

    Currently looking at either the Philips Xtreme-Vision or Ring Xenon 130

    Philips data sheet says lifespan is 450hours
    Cant find any lifespan data for the Xenon

    So just wondering what peoples thoughts are on the above two options. I can suffer some loss of brightness if the lifespan is good or vica versa. But more importantly I'm trying to avoid bulbs failing well before the end of their expected lifetime

    First post so apologies if this thread is on the wrong place

    Thx
