Globe-all warning

Asked by Greg Johnstone

I have a Hyundai i30 and agree with the owner who reckoned the high beam is almost useless. They use cheap halogen bulbs which are somewhat different to the HID low beams in colour. I have replaced the high beam with a "blue" bulb, which has helped a little. I am strongly considering replacement with LED bulbs with similar lumen output to the HID low beam, which come in plug-and-play kit form. The cost quoted ranges from $60 to $90 a pair delivered, depending on brand and power output. The only possible problem is that the bulbs have cooling fans attached to the back of the bulb which might not fit inside the headlight fitting with the rubber sealing cap in place.

A globe upgrade is always good with a quality brand like Philips. However, I would really do the homework before trying an HID conversion as factory units involve a lot of engineering work.
