    I have a 2015 model with awful "yellow" headlights. The glasses have been cleaned with the proper stuff but to no avail.
    Can any-one suggest a conversion to the white lights I'm blinded with from other cars, I understand you can't just fit new bulbs as the original reflectors are not made for these.

    The Phillips +150% are fully road legal and give a very good white light without dazzling the poor sod coming the other way.

    I wouldn't call 3500K ( Philips own spec sheet for the H7 ) a white light , it's warm white .

    And the bulb life of 200 hrs is brief .

    Sounds comfortable and legal, in my Octavia they are good and easy to live with and so far have lasted 3 years. I did fit new headlights when I put them in, mine were faded and this polishing lark was no good back then but now there are some decent systems for refinishing the covers.

    A 100w bulb will use almost twice the current of a 55w bulb & will put the cars wiring under a lot of strain.

    The voltage drop with the higher current will mean that you get less voltage at the lamp.

    It might end up being no brighter than a good quality 55w one ( as mentioned above ) while burning out your wiring at the same time.

    I can't see your link but they are also illegal, likely to melt the headlight bulb fitting and damage the cover

    Try these from one of our sponsors, Sucuri WebSite Firewall - Access Denied (odd link, but it works)
