    Main headlight bulbs upgrade to LED

    I installed these and it was smooth and not problematic. No adapters needed. Just plug+play.
    Light intensity is twice as bright and, of course, LED will last a lot longer.

    Yup, same one with better pricing. But, have to wait for the long boat to sail from China. If I were not in a hurry, I should get from here instead.
    The one I bought from AMZN was on a next morning delivery (shipping included in my Prime membership).

    Hi,
    Rather than hijack the "new member" thread any further, Can I add this here please.
    I am incorrect about the Osram LEDriving HL 67210CW lamps ( to give them their full title), the lamps I have fitted are an earlier generation of this family line. The info I got with the lamps when I got them is as follows -
     Revolution of the automotive lamp: Osram brings the first LED retrofit headlight to German roads
    10/01/2020 | Trade Press

    Osram is the first manufacturer to offer approved LED-based automotive retrofit lamps for the German market. This development is an absolute novelty, as there have been no legal LED replacement lamps for headlight applications until now. With its new product, the number 1 company in automotive lighting is the first supplier to meet the strict approval regulations. "Road approval is an important step that we have been working towards for years. With our LED lamps, drivers can upgrade their halogen lighting to the latest state-of-the-art products legally, easily and cost-effectively," says Hans-Joachim Schwabe, CEO of Osram Automotive. With Osram Night Breaker LEDs, drivers benefit from significantly improved vision and visibility on the roads.

    The LED began its triumphal march into full headlights many years ago, but only in new cars, which is often considered standard today. With the new Osram Night Breaker LED, a manufacturer is now offering approved LED replacement lamps for halogen front headlights in used cars for the first time ever.

    Federal Motor Transport Authority grants approval
    The Night Breaker LED H7 from Osram is the first LED retrofit lamp to pass the extensive test procedures of TÜV Süd, making it a legal replacement for H7 halogen lamps in tested vehicle models. This is confirmed by the German Federal Motor Transport Authority with the granting of the road approval. Currently, the approval covers low-beam light found in many common vehicle models that are registered in Germany. These include popular models such as the BMW 2 Series, Audi A3 and A4 or Ford Mondeo. The number of vehicles is constantly being expanded through ongoing tests and approval procedures.
    Cheers
    Tom

    Hi Tom,

    Product : OXILAM H7 LED Headlight Bulbs, CSP LED Chips 6500K Cool White

    Are you certain this is the same Company that you are talking about ?
    The link I posted is for a product made by OXILAM (not Osram).
    Are they the same Organization?

    Don't worry Arthur, we were discussing Osram LED bulbs in another post and I happened to mention your recommendation. We haven't confused Oxilam with Osram!

    Oh Jeez sorry ArthurY, I have confused again. I will try a few Elocution lessons to try and articulate myself. It all seems fabulously clear in my head :187:
    Lucky we have Hound to clear it all up. Thanks Hound.
    Osram is a German company making quality lamps since 1906. I was quoting one of their products which is a street legal replacement LED lamp.
    I have no experience with Oxilam.

    Cheers
