    In QLD LED and HID retrofit of headlights is illegal.

    The D2 rectangular lights running Osram Nightbreaker Unlimted is a very good thing. Very easy on the eye and good pattern and throw of beam. I have had the same set of bulbs for some years including all of the severe congregations at Cape York. Much cheaper option than the D2a lights that are far from a straight swap.

    Cheers

    I've been running the Philips version, Plus 130's and in stretching it a little, but they're damned near as good as the 130w H4 Cibies I used to use in the Deefer

    Those + 130s are very good things.
    Retrofitting LEDs or HIDs is illegal unless they were an original option, I was told. +130s are much cheaper and a big improvement.

    HID's and LED's are superior to all.

    HID in some vehicles are step back compared to good Halogen headlights. I do admit to liking good LED in headlights. I do like Super Cibie in warm HID but in truth the big wattage Halogen spotties are an easier light on the eye. Cheers

    I prefer the warm +130s to the harsh light of my LED bar, effective though it is.

    Never found a congregation severe enough to make me see the light

    but IME the D2a lights look good in daylight from outside the car, whereas the D2 lights look good when it's dark from inside the car , in other words the D2's are a bit better

    There are some places in the Valley in Brisbane where you could get flashed if you reckon you're missing out.
