I've just ordered a pair of Osram NB Unlimited 60/55W H4s from a seller on ebay.in. Let's see how they turn out. Fingers crossed!

What I heard from a Philips dealer is that there are a lot of fake/replica ones being sold in the market especially that of Philips lighting products. May be the ones with better light output were the lucky ones who got the original ones. Just my guess. However anything beyond say 4,300 ~ 4,500 K color temp. will have relatively reduced light output.

Well, I managed to get my Osram NW Unlimited bulbs from the eBay seller after an extended delay, probably due to Diwali.

I have to say that I'm not too impressed with the performance of the bulbs, it's slightly more whitish in low and bluish in high beams. I wasn't looking for a colour change, but rather an improvement in terms of brightness and reach while sticking to 60/55W specs.

@coloneljasi; The only way you cat get more light is to run the filament hotter (with the gas mixture to control its evaporation). So a bit bluer is a given. I was thinking of replacing the NB+ bulbs in my Brio with the ultimate. Now you have answered it - do not.

The bluer shade is not that prominent and noticeable and shall not be a deciding factor. In fact I find it more yellowish than whitish or blueish. Having said that, the life will definitely be shorter than the OEM bulbs and it is also mentioned on the box. I changed my stock bulbs(still working after 5+ years) with NB+ six months ago and find them useful where streetlights are absent.

I am also thinking of changing the high beam bulbs of my Fiesta Classic into Osram NB Unlimited. I am not satisfied with the throw of the stock bulbs (H1-12V-55) on highways. So, for a better throw, will it help to change it into Osram NB Unlimiteds? Can anyone help me about it?

Today, with a dealer, I saw Osram Mega White bulbs, of the same specifications. I was looking for NBs, and that was not available. The dealer was charging Rs. 1300/- for the mega whites. They also said that these bulbs do not come with any warranty.

Hope you are never stopped by the police with the NBs of the same specification...

Vipin.

I have bought from them before but COD only. They're running low though, only H3 and H1 and that's not the newer Nightbreaker Unlimited either.

At the same wattage the only way of getting more light is to run the filament hotter. So forget the blue tint on the glass (actually fused silica) it light will be a bit bluer.

Hi friends, I was just surfing around for some information about the bulbs upgrade for my new Skoda Rapid. The stock light is absolutely fit for nothing and does not serve the basic purpose too!!

Upon enquiry with a couple of dealers, Osram night breaker unlimited seems to be the one they are suggesting. I am interested to know whether this bulb will serve the purpose or is there anything that I need to look into. I don't mind spending more for a product which is worth.

Two criteria:

1.Not to hamper the warranty
2.Within legal limits

Thanks in advance.

On eBay I have done a few deals with car.n.more. Nikhil is a decent chap and I have had no quality issues with him.

Please check my review report on page 5 of this thread if not seen already,

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...reakers-5.html (Where to buy Osram Night Breakers ?!?)

I've been using NB Unlimited without any issue and is serving the purpose. Much better than stock bulbs. These do not hamper warranty if you stick to same wattage.
You can get these bulbs on eBay or Amazon India (recently launched Auto section)

Has anyone tried out Osram Nightbreaker Unlimited bulbs? I am trying to source them but looks like they are not very common.

Found a couple of them on ebay but due to recent border check post issues in Kerala (Heard there could be unusual delays and problems at Walayar check post) I am not so keen in ordering stuff across the border especially those which are shipped by road.

Any reviews / cost / details about Nightbreaker unlimited by those who are already using them and any info on where could these be sourced from?
I had bought Osram night breakers H7 bulbs from epitstop.in for my palio multijet last year. The bulbs were very good and they increased the night driving pleasure considerably. With our aam junta obsessed over using high beams on their cars even inside city, i could force them to use low beam with these bulbs.

Planning to get a new set of bulbs for my new ride the punto evo.

You can find the bulb specification in the vehicle Manual.

The low beam is H11 and high beam is HB3.
But then also please confirm this with your manual as well.
