I doubt anyone would argue with that!Nigel,
I doubt he makes his own bulbs. He buys from a vendor
Is it the bulb or the lens that's most responsible for that? I just ordered one of Goffy's H4's and he's in the UK so... hope it works OK in the States.Just a reminder that the low beam pattern is different between headlamps for right-side driving (US, etc.) and for left side driving (UK, etc.). If you use the wrong one, you will be blinding oncoming traffic instead of illuminating the driving side shoulder.
It’s the lens so you should be fine.Is it the bulb or the lens that's most responsible for that? I just ordered one of Goffy's H4's and he's in the UK so... hope it works OK in the States.
Yeah, the 5K. I use a Wipac lenz with pilot lamp I bought from a Mini parts supplier. It's worked great with halogen bulbs. I'm keen to try it too.It’s the lens so you should be fine.
Did you go for the 5k one? I’ve got a couple of those coming and am keen to try them out.
I bought the 3 entire vehicles worth (MKIV VW’s) of “superbrightleds” and they failed miserably. Went off like flashcubes...Unfortunately, that's not true. Anything with solder joints is subject to vibration failure. I'm in the process of returning a tail lamp to superbrightleds because it flickers when my engine is running. It's fine with no vibration.
If both this bulbs have no manufactures name, which one is the “real” thing?“Add to that the issue of mass counterfitting that we have these days and there must be dozens of similar looking products out there, but their performance is very much unknown”
That’s the whole point / issue with regards to counterfeit goods. And having a manufacturer’s name on makes no difference.If both this bulbs have no manufactures name, which one is the “real” thing?

Which is why, although it is no guarantee, buying from a trusted supplier is safer. At least you put the odds a little bit more in your favour.
Baz,All of the above is the reason for the original question IE what are people actually using
I wanted a recommendation from somebody for an actual product
But having said that this post has thrown up some interesting stuff
Well to me it has anyway
