Evening all . Just a quick question. My main beam headlight bulb blew tonight on the way home. I only noticed when I pulled onto the drive against the White garage door. ( thought something wasn't right before that but didn't twig)

I'm just surprised I didn't get a warning on the car info system to tell me. Is there such a thing on the RCZ to tell you a bulb is off ?

I made a trip to Halfords and got sucked into the upgrade to buy one get one free on the higher light intensity bulbs at £40 ish for two as I got the other side replaced at the same time. Now I understand they blow quite quickly according to reviews online . I also got told by the guy who fitted them at Halfords they come with a 12 month warranty and to keep the receipt but again on Halfords reviews some people say there's blew after 3 months and were told there is no warranty on them . God I hate impulse buys ............ :crazy:

The RCZ does have the facility to give you a warning, but you have to go into the display through your radio. Its quicker just to get out and have a look.

Thanks Abzynthe. I agree with you on that one. Was just surprised that the car didn't alert me,but now I know why.
With all the technology on these cars I would have thought when the bulb blew the car would have re generated another ! :eusa-whistle:

Just hoping my Halfords specials last longer than some say lol.......

It is a pity you don't offer the Philips D1S Ultinon 6000K HID bulbs. I'm going to switch to them from the original Philips Xenarc Start HIDs. I have those Ultinon on my other car and they are just on a different level compared to other aftermarket HIDs :greetings-wavingblue:

Yes those are great bulbs and we are checking with our supplier, but we believe they are not legal use on the roads here in the UK or Europe.
