If someone know where to buy PHILIPS Halogen bulbs in Sri Lanka? I have a FD1. Even Stafford does not have. I checked Darley road as well. They have only Chinese stuff which are not durable. Checked ebay also. They have all types but not my type. That is H5 12V 60W BLUE. Dont know whether I could use other types(H1 H7 and etc).

Thank you

I am not sure about the agents.........whom is Hay****s

I do go for Osram from D**O, they have a full catalog and even offered me to get some specific bulbs imported. Has seen the SilverStar and Cool Blue in country. Cannot remember H5s, but worth trying, at least over the phone. They are helpful.

How much the bulbs set you back? I'm thinking of getting down some Osram Nightbreaker Plus bulbs (better light output than Silverstars apparently), but I would buy them from the agent in a heartbeat if the price was right.

Agent for OSRAM is D**O and I have PM you............these lights are bright but shorter service hours compared to OSRAM L (long service time)

I recommend Koito as well, particularly if you can find the originals. Standard equipment in most Japanese vehicles. I've also tried Bosch which is also pretty good.

So the Osrams I ordered arrived today. Well the H4s arrived, not sure why the H3s didn't arrive with them since I ordered them from the same place.

Here are some photos for comparison.

It came wrapped in bubble wrap, inside another box. I've never had any fragile items broken during shipment thus far.

Terra, care to share your seller? Are they original night breakers? Any pics for comparison ? ;)

I looked at powerbulbs.com to bring down some HB3s for my headlamp solely to avoid fakes, but the their price is very high. (> 7500/= for a pair)
So thought of moving back to ebay, but looks like only one seller got HB3 s. (< 4500/= for a pair)
(http://www.ebay.com/....&prg=1020&rk=1)

D*I*M*O doesn't have HB series of nightbreakers.

EDIT.
Found this UK ebay seller and he looks good.
