Question Halfords Extreme Brilliance Bulbs?

Does anyone know if these will work without any error codes on a 2007 (57 plate) 320d which has standard lights, i.e. no Xenons. If so, has anyone got any experience of how good they are?

TIA

personally I would use the philips power vision you can get them from powerbulbs and they always have lasted a lot longer and given better light than any halfords stuff, plus these win autoexpress tests each year. Heres the link. I used these in my focus and also in mini and my e46 and all gave amazing impromovements.

You're just replacing 55w H7 bulbs with alternative 55w H7 bulb, albeit a 'premium' one. It won't give any errors - it's just a bulb.
