  1. Philips Racing 150%+ bulb test

    Alfa GTA
    A question that pops up here fairly frequently is light bulbs. We all know that Alfa can't design halogen lights that actually light the road ahead. I have been doing a little testing on a set of H7 size Philips Racing +150% bulbs ( that I'd like to share. The test was on...

  6. Set of Philips bulbs and Castrol oil up for grabs

    Alfa GTA
    Hi GTA peeps. Been doing a bit of sorting out in the shed today. I discovered a full set of unopened front bulbs (full beam, sidelights, fog lights) for the 147 GTA. I was planning on fitting them all when the next bulb failed (thought I'd get the bumper off and do the lot). I also have a...
  7. Philips X-tremeVision

    Alfa Giulietta
    I just popped in a set of the Philips X-tremeVision H7 bulbs for the dipped beams. Was driving on the motorway last night and didn't find them to be very even in terms of the way it lights up the road. The left side seems to be much more lit up than it was before. Greater distance and...

  18. Philips RC959 Carin Navigation Set User Guide

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hi - Just acquired a 1998 GTV V6, which has a Philips RD959 (Carin) Navigation unit. The car did not come with a CD which I assume is required to make the GPS unit functional. My question is, given it's an old unit, is it worth trying to get it up and running? Are there current map CDs available...

    About 15 quid off ebay, wanted a pair to complement my Blue Vision main and dipped beam bulbs, heh. They're certainly brighter than the old standard bulbs and a bit less yellow, but unfortunately not the beautiful crystal clear bright white light I had been expecting. Not that I ever even use my...
