Used 'em elsewhere (my 156 has factory Xenons) ... they're great ... substantially brighter (and whiter) than regular halogens ... last easily as long as anything else assuming you observe the usual "don't touch the glass" precautions.

Well worth the extra spend in my experience

Have used them in my wife's car. They have lasted as long as any other bulb. Improved light over the usual standard items but they were not as good as I was expecting (maybe because there was a lot of hype about them). They are however a decent improvement without any penalty in terms of life span in my experience.

I have these. Seem too last longer as I went through a phase of buying halford own brand junk that popped frequently. Can recommend.

I've used them & got five years use out of them before one failed; they are much better than standard bulbs. I've replaced them with Philips X-treme Vision +130, which are noticeably brighter. I've only had those since January so I can't really comment on how long they'll last.

I've got them fitted in the fogs of my Gt, they are OK. For the price of two Nightbreakers on the internet, you can buy one Halfrauds own brand bulb, this alone makes them worthwhile!
In my experience there isn't a bulb on the market that lives up to expectations when using the original lens/reflector.
If you want better light output then a conversion to HID and projector is the only way.

I wouldn't buy any others now. Much better than standard brightness and last just as long if not more than cheaper bulbs. Often decent deals on them to be found on ECP or eBay too.
