  1. Bi-Xenon headlight beams too dipped

    Alfa Giulia
    Stelvio owner here (posting on the Giulia forum as the Xenon lights are the same I believe). I've had the car for a week now but only tonight drove it in pitch black conditions in the countryside. I noticed that the Xenon head lights cast their beams too close to the car - basically too...
  2. xenon dipped beam not working

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hello. Recently, the left dipped beam of my Giulietta (2.0 JTDM 170PS @180K km, Left Hand Drive imported from Germany to Switzerland) stopped working. The rest of the light cluster is working: high beam, led daylight, ... After scrolling through some threads here, I checked the fuse, which...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Hello! I plan to upgrade the headlights on my 159 from the dull yellow halogen lights to white LED lights. I was wondering if people who have experience could shed light on what they went for on their own Brera/159's? Thanks in advance! -S
  4. Best Headlight Bulbs for 147 recommendation?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello, My Headlight's are incredibly dim on my 2001 147 and I'm pretty certain they are decent enough ones. They've been on there a while though. At least they are lasting! These days a lot of cars seem to have their full beam lights on but it turns out they are just bright headlights...

  6. NS Dipped Beam not working, why?!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I have a problem I can't put my finger on with my NS dipped beam. Noticed couple of days ago it was out so replaced the bulb. Some missing skin later and still nothing? Checked and swapped fuses in the fuse box under dash, still nothing. OS still works fine?? Swapped out relay for...
  7. Do +130% bulbs help for the GT's terrible dipped beams?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    One of these days I'm going to do a full write-up on my GT project guys. "When it's done" lol. For now I'm trying to solve the abysmal dipped beam headlights on a 2007 (non-HID) GT. At first I thought it was because they were improperly set so they were pointing too low, but I'm starting to...
  8. 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...
  9. Dipped headlight bulb clip

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi there, I was wondering if anyone knows where I can get a a clip for the dipped beam headlight bulb for my G please. Had a bulb go recently and discovered the previous owner had lost the clip and used adhesive to hold the bulb in place. Apparently Alfa expect you to buy the whole headlight...
  10. 159 Both dipped beam stopped working

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Noticed tonight both my dipped beam stopped working. They were changed at different times not too long ago. All other lights working. Quite confident they were both working together before they stopped. Need help on diagnosing this.. I'll check both bulbs first, what else can I check...
  11. Main beam and dipped beam on at the same time

    Alfa Giulietta
    Last week I upgraded the dipped beam bulbs on my 1.6 JTDm G. I fitted bulbs from Halfords marked as being 90% brighter than standard ( at acost of £25 for the pair) and have found a marked improvement. My thanks to those people who in the past have shared their experiances when changing these...
  12. Headlights - dipped beam stopped working, any ideas ?

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Strangely my dipped beams have stopped working meaning i can drive with side lights or full beam only at the moment ! Logically both blubs going together is very unlikely so presume it's a fuse (are both lights on same fuse ?) or maybe a loose wire ? Has anyone else had something similar ...
  13. NSF Dipped beam bulb

    Alfa Giulietta
    I have managed to change to passenger side dipped beam bulb. I undid the strap holding the battery at the front just to slide it 10mm to the left. After ages ripping my hand and wrist to bits noticed that the screen wash bottle unclips at the top and swings round 60° anti-clockwise. It's still a...
  14. No dipped beam warning light?

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Simple question this... Can anyone confirm whether there is a warning light for dipped beam on the phase-2 instrument panel? I wonder if mine had one and if it has blown. Tried shining a torch at the cluster but couldn't see the icons except the left/right indicator arrows. Since fitting LEDs...

  16. Question re HID dipped lights on 159

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Please can someone let me know how many spades are on the original equipment dipped lights on a 2007 159? I have bought some Osram HID bulbs but notice they only have two spade connectors. Before I try changing them I just wanted to check if they should be one,two or three spade connectors...
  17. No dipped headlights

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Come out to my 159 Friday night to find my dipped headlights weren't working. Having got round to checking the fuses were fine, then checked the bulbs to find one bulb blown and the other all cloudy. My question is does this sound like just a simple case of changing the bulbs, as I had no...
  18. Changed idiotic dipped headlights

    Alfa Giulietta
    Well as the title says, this has to rank as the most frustrating ridiculous job I've ever attempted on any car I've ever owned. I love the g and how she looks so bought a set of upgraded lamps to set it off. Three hours later, a bad back, shredded wrist and a grade one headache through looking...
  19. 147 dipped headlights relay and wiring

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Basically I want to connect some light inside the car which go on when I use the normal/dipped headlights. Hence I thought ill look for the relay and follow the wire to a good place to connect to. However I can't seem to find anything about relays in the manual and having looked around online it...
  20. H7 dipped headlights upgrades.

    Alfa Giulietta
    Hi everyone,I've seen a few old posts on here about changing the headlights to a whiter light, but nothing recent. My question is, has anyone got any recommendations , are the Osram night breakers still the best, or the Phillips x-treme any good? What about Halfords own brand, anyone tried them...
