    N5 Headlight brightness

    What's a good globe to increase the brightness of my headlights? Are they all different in size?

    I have only noticed recently that in real dark areas they don't light up very well.

    See the 206GTi <a href="http://www.206gti.net/faq/#22" target="_blank">FAQ</a>, try Philips Vision Plus ... they are very good.

    ,... Kristian, also aim for globes that are the same Wattage as your factory unit. brighter/bigger watt units are both illegal and can over some time burn out your connection and wiring, this goes for all road cars. - chris

    N5's also have poly carbonate lenses in them so anything bigger will do damage to the lense from the extra heat
    standard they are 55w H7 globes in them
    low beam total 110w
    high beam total 220w

    far cry from my old 504 with 550w across the front with the 4 round lights
