  1. Osram LEDriving HL GEN2 6000K Bulbs - Seriously good!

    Alfa Giulietta
    I've been meaning to put some decent bulbs in the G since i got her. I've searched this forum looking for halogen bulb recommendations, when this week I get an email from Osram telling me about their fancy new LED bulbs for halogen lamps (not for road use of course) and how they are new and...
  2. Headlamp restoration & new bulbs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Previous owner had left loads of glue & staying all over headlights (I’d guess from stick on beam adjusters) and it’s been bugging me for ages so yesterday (after installing carpet in GTV) I thought I’d tackle this little one Using an autoglym kit & cordless drill it’s all fairly straight...
  3. Bulbs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, i've had my alfa 156 jts for 2 or 3 months now and have put new osram night breakers in as i thought they were dull. This didn't help in the slightest, does anyone have the same car with a better suggestion for brighter bulbs. Regards, Eric.
  4. GT Clear indicators & LED bulbs - solution

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, Thought I'd post on here my findings about the clear indicator mod, and especially using LED indicator bulbs as I couldn't find anything about this in past posts. The clear lens mod has already been covered, found it pretty straight forward, just be slow and gentle :devious: As for...
  5. Best bulbs?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, Perfect day for a blast today but on the way home one of my dipped beam bulbs blew. Will get both replaced tomorrow but wanted to see if anyone has recommendations for a good bulb for the long dark winter? Would be good to get something brighter than the standard but don’t want...
  6. Anyone want these sidelight bulbs?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Japanese MTEC sidelight bulbs, supposed to be about 5k white- not LEDs. I just fitted one and they’re crap, wouldn’t want to be sat on the side of a dark road with those as a beacon, so free to anyone who wants them. I’ll stick with the yellow Alfa ones that always seem to work.
  7. H7 LED Headlight bulbs

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello All. I currently have H7 HID installed in my car but I am now looking at changing to LED. Has anyone done this and also do they have any photos of before and after? Thanks All.
  8. Led Sidelight bulbs

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hi All, M159 has Xenon lights, so when they are on with the sidelights it looks rubbish (sidelights are standard filament bulb and v yellow) Can anyone recommend a canbus compliant plug and play led sidelight bulb please. Cheers MC
  9. Factory HID (supplementary?) bulbs

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hey guys, This subject is something I've always had some curiosity about. I've heard that some guys usually change the halogen H1 bulbs on their HID kits for led H1. These are the bulbs turned on when you turn on the high beams. Does the led H1 really make a difference? As anybody here heard...
  10. HB3 LED Bulbs - Amazed how good they are...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    So, these dark nights I've got more and more unhappy with the light from my standard dipped beam halogens on the V6. Read the threads on here, and decied to go for some cut price seemingly good quality items on amazon www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B073XHZCVB I've been using them for two weeks now...

  12. Alfa 156 dial bulbs- easy to change?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, My new 156 2.5 has (presumably) dead bulbs behing the temperature gague. How easy is it to check and change the bulbs? Also how feasable is it to change the dials and binacle clocks? I much prefer the non-sport pack clocks! Cheers SD
  13. New Headlight bulbs?

    Alfa MiTo
    Would someone give me an idea as to which dip bulbs they would fit to a 2011 Mito Diesel. Also should the oil filler cap have some sort of seal. My car seems to be running much better after stopping using supermarket Diesel. I never used it but the previous owner lived near a large supermarket...
  14. Changing 916 Spider headlight bulbs

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Think I've managed to acquire the right bulbs to try and get more light out of my dipped headlights, thanks to other posts on this forum, but how do you actually get at them to change them?! I'm sure it's probably not as complicated as it at first appears, but don't want to start taking stuff...
  15. Changing Dash Bulbs Behind Speedo

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Can someone give me an idea of how easy it is to change the dash bulbs behind the speedo and rev counter as occasionally one and sometimes 2 bulbs go out, only to come back on a few minutes later and its driving me mad I appreciate that the bulbs have not gone but clearly they need re seating...
  16. LED Bulbs on Giulietta Veloce

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all, I'm thinking of fitting some LED Bulbs into my Giulietta Veloce as the standard bulbs are rather yellow and not that bright, can any of you shed any light( pun not intended) on the fitment? I think they are H7 and if anyone else has used them. Thanks in advance. Sent from my...
  17. Dipped beam bulbs question

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I'm not sure if I put it in the correct board.. It's getting dark early now and I noticed my headlights are doing a rather poor job illuminating the road. I was wondering what bulbs do you have in your dipped beams? I checked a thread from 2012 where some of you recommended Philips bulbs...
  18. Xenon Bulbs Lunex or Morimoto

    Alfa GTA
    Has anyone used these brands as replacements for the D2S Xenon bulbs? Are they any good compared to paying big money for Osram Nightbreaker unlimited for example?
  19. Fog light bulbs

    Alfa Giulietta
    Gotta take my bumper off to change grille and thinking LED fogs while I'm there. What bulb is it cause I'm finding H3 but H1 on some sites and alfa apparently don't know of any bulb on any car unless they take it out (Yhh right). Any CANBUS issues?
