  1. Headlamp Bulbs BLS

    Thanks Bruce, I did little digging, as the Ultra's dont seem to be sold in the UK. For EU reg 37 bulbs the Standard H7, 55w, bulbs have a rating of 1500 lumens, 500 hours life.(about) But for other bulbs as far as I can tell: 1508 lumens, 250 hours life Osram Cool Blue 1780 lumens, 340 hours life for the Osram Night Breaker 1750 lumens, 350 hours life for the Osram Silverstar 1620 lumens, 340 hours life for Philips X-treme Power H7 Osram is the parent company of Sylvania but Sylvania Silverstars (blue glass) and Osram Silverstars (clear glass) are not the same product according to The poor lifetime for the Coolblue and Sylvania Silverstars is because the filaments have to be overdriven to get the rated light output. I'm going to try some Night Breakers - unless any suggests anything different. Sobraon
  2. I have just added up the number of views (4798) against the number of posts (12) in the BLS Help and Discussion forum. Wow! this means each message has on average been read 400 times ! Come on BLS owners lets share some info. So, what info would I like to view/share/discuss/read about? Well how about Fuel MPG (anyone use Tyres which are best and what they cost and best suppliers. Servicing cost and best dealers. BLS's you have seen on your travels. Equivalent parts from other GM marques. Pictures of members vehicles. Sobraon
  3. Headlamp Bulbs BLS

    Stratstone Nottingham have just given me a call back to let me know that the bulbs are H7. So I'm going to price up the Osrams on Ebay. Anyone suggest anything else? Are the Xenon kits worth it? Sobraon
  4. Hi all, SWMBO has complained about the brightness of the headlights on the standard BLS bulbs. So I thought I would upgrade them with "Osram Nightbreaker" bulbs. However I cant find out what type to order as the major bulb suppliers on Google say the car does not exist(!!). If anyone has updated their lights I would be grateful for any suggestions. Sobraon
  5. Ling's BLS Leases

    I was very tempted by Ling's offer (love her website). But decided in the end to go for a 1yr old 1.9D Auto Lux - picking it up on Tuesday can't wait !! John
