    Hi all, I'm thinking of lowering the car slightly in January by fitting Eibach springs (30-35mm). In wintertime, I drive on 17-inch rims with 225/50 tyres and in summer on 19 inch Ti's with 235/40 tyres. So the springs will be fitted when I am still on the winter wheels. Will there be a...
  13. Headlight bulb sizes

    General Motoring Discussion
    No, not the types, the actual physical sizes. I've noticed that certain H4 or H7 have thinner bulbs than standard. (Notably your Osrams and your Philips.) I guess this is to make them brighter, but what's the factor? Are the bulbs smaller to allow greater gas pressure? Or less gas volume...
