    Hi guys,
    In new to all this but here it goes!! I've a t6 but the headlights are awful driving at night, dip and full beam you can't see a thing. Have you guys got any advice on a bulb upgrade please I'd be most grateful?? I'm not very good on the spanners but can fix houses they are a lot simpler!!!

    Welcome to the group.
    Always plenty going on with the H4 lights and how poor they are on here!!
    If you do a search you will find lots of advice to help, here’s the first:-
    The H4 lights will always be poor whatever bulbs you put in them!

    Genuine Caravelle H7 lights or THQ/Travelinlites Projector conversion are really the only way to go from H4.

    If you can't afford new units, I recommend Osram Nightbreakers. About £20 or previously I had Phillips 130+ something or other. They are a massive improvement on the original H4 bulbs.

    Sorry, but I don't get that. The lights are very bad, there is absolutely no argument in that.

    That was normally my line, but I think he'd been on the gin last night, and was looking for a fight. Anyone that has a colour scheme like his, has bigger balls than me, so I wasn't poking that bear.
