Thanks! Looks like this guy doesn't have HB series.

Yeah, I saw those package photos in the the first place, but what I mentioned was the performance of them after you fitted in:) Fingers crossed for my worthy investment.

An update from me. After reading many reviews, I came to a conclusion that 80+ 90+ efficient lights do not last longer, and the difference between 30+, 50+, >50+ is not that significant.

So I have fallen back to Philips Blue Vision 30+ (4000K) HB3 for my headlamp considering the lifetime and the cost. Cost was 3000/= per pair. (HB series is expensive than H)

(Osram nightbreakers were somewhere like 7000/= per pair)

90+ aren't known for their longevity, rather their increased output (up to 90% extra over regular 55/60 bulbs). In fact, Nightbreakers were notorious for their short lifespan till the Plus variety came along.

Yeah, I do hope that PLUS will last longer. But there aren't any proofs yet. Hopefully you can comment here, and I sincerely hope it should be couple of years later:)

The other reason did not select Nightbreakers was I got four lamps (2 HB3 & 2 HB4), so the cost will be high. Planning to buy Philips Crystal Vision Ultra 4500K for the other two since I prefer a little blue tint HID look.

In any case, one should not question about the light output of osram nightbreakers plus and philips xtreme vision. They are at the top of their rankings. It's just that you might have to compensate the lifespan a little bit for more light.

If someone know where to buy PHILIPS Halogen bulbs in Sri Lanka? I have a FD1. Even Stafford does not have. I checked Darley road as well. They have only Chinese stuff which are not durable. Checked ebay also. They have all types but not my type. That is H5 12V 60W BLUE. Dont know whether I could use other types(H1 H7 and etc).

Thank you
