When all is in good condition, they are good, if a little too sharp in their beam cut off. But they easily go downhill fast with the yellowed lenses inside, poor reflecting silver, and voltage losses.

They should be “sufficient” though  

 

Try genuine (so not eBay, Amazon!) Osram Nightbreakers in them for best results I’m told  I found them very good too  

 

the man in halfords was showing me their posh bulbs they have

they indeed look posh

i'll buy some and try

Ps In case I haven't communicated this sufficiently before: impressed and jealous in equal measure with your purchase, progress and ultimately, rescue of this beast. My only gripe with mine is that the four-pedal dance of a manual with that parking brake is a bit frantic for the nature of the rest of the car, and i want to know what an auto 2.1td goes like

from what i felt it went very well, similar feeling to the C5.....bit more lag etc and ovbiously less refined

yes i'm impressed with myself for actually buying it!

trust me, this car is safe

i did have a worry about it's future, certainly if i didn't buy it i was told he'd probably end up scrapping it which would be sad

True but are they chav-blue?!

i don't know i'm afraid

they were shiny

not many motor factors that are very good round here

halford's are quite good really, certainly been quite impressed with them lately

damn side better than euro car parts

I've got yellow head light bulbs on the BX (well, bulb covers) 

Can confirm that they look cool as penguin piss, but I can't see a chuffing thing at night. Worth it though. It's all very French.

It's authentically dangerous. I like it.

i've been thinking about this car quite a bit

as in, once it's on the road it really won't need too much

now the main thing is i'm worried about is just making it look nice

it's a lot of work, as quite simply this car has been neglected and ruined unfortunately

so the work will be reversing that, going to be great fun to do
