Fitted a set of these to replace the H1 and H7's on my ZT. The difference between standard and these night breakers is substantial, they will make this winters night driving a lot less stressful.
I hope these last well, the OEM headlight bulbs have lasted 7 years, the first failure occurred last week.
H1's £12.95 per pair, H7's £14.50 per pair from AP Motorstore via Amazon. Allegedly 50% longer life than the previous version. However long that was.

I fitted a set of Night Breakers (H7) in July last year. Just 7 month and 5,617 miles later I have to replace one of them.

Now I've ordered a set of Osram Ultra Life again. Last time they lasted for 23,028 miles of everyday DRL usage (more than 2 years).

Mick you have done well if over 7 years you did not have a bulb go - unless you only drive 200 miles a year and only in the light.

I find the dipped beams go fairly often - until last year 25,000 miles pa now 20,000. However, in driving 200,000 miles of driving 75s the first main beam has gone.

hi.i fitted these also for my dip/full and spots last summer after a freind reccommended them to me.I have to say they are brilliant so far,so much better than the phillips bulbs or whatever they were i took out,its a pleasure to use them at night!
i did mine whilst the front was off to replace the cooling fan and rad etc,which made it easy,a much whiter light and you can see at 70-80 on dip now,
