MG MGB Technical - bulb upgrade
|hello ,is there a better bulb on the market for the head lights , ive found them to be very poor , the units are in good condition with no rust .i purchased an upgrade for my tvr think they are called Xion thanks|
Go for PIAA bulbs.
The best you can get. I have them in my rally GT, in the headlamps as well in the spotlamps
They consume 55W but deliver 110W (depends on the type)
Google to find a UK distributor.
Not cheap but money good spend.
|If you uprate the bulbs you should fit relays and fuses, *especially* if the new bulbs take more current than the old. If you don't then you can be losing quite a bit of the extra output in the old switches, wiring and connections.|
| As reorted by Paul Hunt, it's amazing to discover how a well relayed installation may solve the front light power issue alone.|
|just fitted some xenon from flea bay , they are a blue colour and give a nice bight white light , im very happy with them , cost me £11.94 with the side light bulbs.|
