Well Happy Well thank you!

I strongly felt I needed to do something about the woefully inadequate lighting on my beloved 156, so I did what every sensible Alfa Owner would do and search the Forum for advice. Advice that I took. I spent lots of money with those good fellows at powerbulbs.com on both dipped - Phillips X-treme Power and main - Osram Night Breaker H1.

Sheesh! What a difference. When I drove home from fitting them in the warehouse, people were getting up to go to work, thinking dawn had come. You know in Raiders of the Lost ark, when they open it and peoples faces melt? Well, that what was happening to the poor pedestrians that I approached. When I drove home in Dorset, I lit up Wiltshire. And Hampshire and Devon.

Thank you for your wisdom. Makes a *hell* of a difference.

I suppose that I should state that I am in no way connected with Phillips, Osram and powerbulbs.com, I just took your sound advice and it was spot on. Thanks, all!

OK, maybe the fitting was a bit testing but skin was not broken. Bruised, but not broken. Very pleased indeed.
