Brighter Headlights Advice Please

Hi

Mrs subframe bought a Mini of her own now, a Mini One, she likes it very much but she complains that the headlights are very dim.

Is there a good bright replacement for what she already has please.

Check the bulb type in your car, but Philips X-treme Vision H7 XTV are the best available for durability among the many 'brighter' bulbs available.
You might also check that the alignment is correct.

I use the Ring 150% brighter bulbs in mine. On an R56 MINI the bulbs are H4, not H7.

I use these which are LED:
HIKARI LED Headlight Bulbs Conversion Kit-H7,2019 New Gen of HIKARI, Adjustable Beam, 9600lm 6K Cool White,2 Yr Warranty. They are also available in H4. They are available from Amazon. Check to make certain they will conform to UK DOT.
