I beg to defer. I was using Osram NB in Santro and the result was fantastic. But the life will be less.

According to me

Osram NB : If you need more focussed light (specially in High Beam) and less life
Philips Extream : If you need more spread specially in Low beam with more life

this is my personal openion after using both.

Thanks

100% in agreeement with Rajesh.

NB has much better focus and illuminates the road very well. But its life is much lesser than Philips Extreme.

If you do a lot of Higway driving go for NB, else Philips will do the job.

It will also depend on car to as as reflectors also play a major role on light through and focus. I have seen 60/55 are better in a Punto than Alto as Punto's reflectors are way better than Alto's.

I would also suggest you to take a look at XtremeVision which claims 100% more light.
para_7k, Where in Chennai did you pick up your bulbs? Any contact information will be very useful.

Toms, did you receive the product or you just placed an order? If you received it how many days did it take for delivery.

Folks, need help - Planning to replace 60/55 Headlamps on my Swift Dzire, is this a good choice ? Don't want 100/90 since I don't do much night time driving on highways.
Osram Night Breaker H4 - 64193 NBR

EDIT:Confusion time...What about these ?
Philips X-treme Vision, all 3 are 60/55 but wondering what the difference between them is ?

I am using NB+ and personally not very happy with it. In rainy condition it becomes pathetic than the stock. Better try Philips xtreme vision.

Perhaps the headlights are not focused properly ?

+1 to that.
I've seen this too and there is no proper documentation that provides details of each part number.
Also the last time I checked, the dealer/store locator had failed & it showed only 1 store in Kolhapur when Maharashtra state was selected. No other city at all.

No. It is good. I checked that too. NB+ is better than stock in normal condition but under rains, it is just pathetic (may be because of the whitish light).

OH
Night + rain was the combination for which I'm primarily looking for a good headlamp bulb. if XV / NB+ are not good for this then I see no alternative but to upgrade to higher power bulbs. Majority of my drives are highway during late hours.

Hey guys,

I am looking to upgrade the headlight bulbs of my Skoda Octavia. My current bulbs are not powerful enough. Can someone please suggest the right ones for the same. Also where can I find these in Pune considering that I am based in Pune.

Thanks and regards,

ElDiablo
