In this article, we’ll explore both options and tell you which is brighter.

Each car has different lights and therefore requires different bulbs. There's headlights, fog lights, brake lights, indicator lights, sidelights and interior lights - just to name a few!

A fitting refers to the shape and size of the base of the bulb in order for it to correctly fit your vehicle.
There are a few different ways that you can find out what fitting your car needs for the particular type of bulb you want to purchase, including using the PowerBulbs bulb finder, and checking your vehicle handbook.

Did you know it is just as easy to upgrade your bike bulbs as it is your car? Whilst riding a motorbike you are 50 times more likely to suffer serious or fatal injuries should you be involved in a collision. Improving your visibility can be as simple as upgrading your motorcycle headlight bulb.
Typically, motorcyclists operate headlight bulbs during both the day and night for one purpose: to be seen. Halogen bulbs deteriorate over time until eventual failure. It's safe to assume a motorbike will consume a bulbs' life much faster than a car, considering its extended use and increased vibration.
