Hello I have had the QQ less than two weeks and have now done about a thousand miles and are getting on well with it, but I have a question about headlights... I leave pretty early in the mornings ( 6 ish ) and the first part of my journey is pretty dark and back lanes, both dipped and main beam are pretty good but I see other vehicles on the road and their lights just seem that little bit brighter, so basically is there any bulbs that are a straight forward replacement for the ones that ?. Mine seem to have that have a yellowish tint to them. My QQ is a 59 plate 1.5 Ntec.. Oh the lights have to be legal..

Thanks for reading, Steve.

In my days of standard headlights similar to what you probably have, I always purchased OSRAM Night Breaker Unlimited, these give an intense legal white light that will be an improvement on what you have. Philips also make a good equivalent, but in my experience not a powerful as the Osram's

I have had Osram Nightbreakers in for over 18 months. They are brilliant bulbs but are fiddley to fit.

Hi All. As a newbie this is my first post and my questions is about headlight replacement bulbs. I have a 2014 1.5 diesel model and want to replace both dipped and main beam bulbs with Osram night breaker but I have been told by Nissan this bulb is not suitable because of extra heat generated, I have also been told by the garage that will fit them I have to sign a disclaimer. Has anyone on here come across this before?
