Is anyone using this light and is it any good?

Does it use more power than standard bulb?

Cheers,

The brighter bulbs very often do give more light but have two disadvantages. The first on is the price. De second problem is that they don't last long. I used to always buy Philips bulbs ansd still have them fitted in the car but they need replacing every year and I am not using my lights all the time. This is normal as I have checked this with Philips. I use the night guide Bulbs. So check with Osram how many hours they last.
Philips tests the bulbs at a lower voltage as the voltage we get over the battery. And when it is around 14,4 Volts the bulbs last a lot shorter again.
