Headlight Bulbs Question
Posted 17 June 2013 - 07:01 PM
According to the manual the high beam is an H1 bulb, and the Low beam is H7, but on here ive seen people say that they used 2 H11 bulbs as replacements.
My Diavel is Japan specs and 2013 model, does that make any difference?

Check out PIAA's web site where I think you will be able to find what you are looking for in brightness and color.

My question was more about the type of bulbs people are using for the diavel. I thought i saw an earlier post where people said they were using H11 bulbs.
Anyway, i will look into piaa bulbs and make changes accordingly. Ill stick with H1 and H7 for high/low beam, since HID for the diavel seems to be such a pain in the ass.

I have tried up to 12000K for main headlights: I would very strongly recommend against going any higher, as light output (lumens) really drops once you go over 6000K! Of course, 12000K xenons are still about twice as bright as normal halogens, so the output drop is still not making the xenons too weak.
Check the pics with high and low beams: low beam is 12000K and is really purple in the dark, while it seems blue in daylight. High beam is 8000K. The led running lights are w5w (wedge) and not bright at all, compared to xenons: compared to stock halogens they were plenty bright, but of course not enough output to use at any form of main lighting!
In the Diavel I had the dealer install 8000K xenon for low beam, that's it. This xenon seems blueish white, still about 3x the output of halogens and is quite conspicuous.
In my previous car I once tried Philips bulbs: double wattage of stock and bright white (5000-6000K I think) and that already made a difference. Xenons are still waaayyyy better, of course: more expensive because you need the ballast and extra wiring too and not just a new bulb.
