Products!

Lots of lights, bulbs, and prices below. But first:


How do I buy?
Where's the shopping cart...?

There isn't one. Send me an email and I'll be happy to get your needs handled. Ordering isn't hard; I accept credit cards and various other forms of money, and we'll discuss it once we've worked out your order.

Why do I do it this way? Because choosing automotive lighting devices and bulbs is a good bit more complex than it might seem, and a great deal more complex than some vendors would have you believe. Prewrap, one-for-all offerings generally don't give results as satisfactory as solutions specifically put together for your needs on your vehicles under your driving conditions. Often, the products you want because you've seen them, heard or read about them, are in fact not the ones that'll do the best job of accomplishing your actual lighting goals.

So, I've opted to carry on providing personal, one-on-one consultation ("How can I help you?) rather than installing a shopping cart ("Gimme yer money and get outta my face!"). Old-fashioned? A little slower? Yep, especially if you're experienced and knowledgeable, and I realize that. But, I really feel my enviable reputation for customer satisfaction is worth it. If you don't agree, you may choose to shop elsewhere, and that's OK. But if you agree with me, please feel free to send me an email

and I'll be happy to get your needs handled.

Relay Installation Kits
and harnesses

for headlamps and auxiliary lamps

Thin factory wiring starves bulbs!
Click here for more information.
These parts packs and custom-built harnesses help you feed full power to the headlamps for maximum nighttime seeing. Kits include American and European-made extreme-duty parts to accept your own 10-12ga wire: 30-amp relays with dual output terminals, relay brackets and terminal blocks, terminals, extra-tough fused fuseholders and high-heat headlamp sockets. Harnesses are built by our master electrician using these same components. In most cases, the vehicle's factory wiring remains uncut.

Wire is not supplied with kits because your local economy offers a wide selection of colors and lengths; it's the hardware in these kits that is so hard to find locally.

Harnesses are custom-built to order by a skilled master electrician using the same kinds of high-grade parts as supplied in the kits. The harnesses arrive ready to install on your specific vehicle, no assembly required.

Top-quality bulbs


For headlamps and auxiliary lamps.
Bulbs listed are 12v types.
6v and 24v types are available—please enquire.


First, a Note About "Plus" Bulbs:
"Plus+" bulbs (+50, +80, +110, etc) are standard-wattage items with higher filament luminance and tighter filament focus. They give better headlight performance than standard bulbs—longer seeing distance and broader beam coverage—with an attendant shorter bulb lifespan. They have totally or mostly colourless clear glass so all the filament's light reaches the road (some of these have a blue band near the tip; it does not reduce light reaching the road because of its placement). The small number of reputable makers in the world differ a little in how they test and label their bulbs—the bulbs called "+110" by Osram, "+120" by Tungsram, and "+130" by Philips are substantially alike as a class, though depending on the bulb type there may be a reason to prefer one over another; I am constantly testing bulbs to keep on top of (and keep stock of) the best ones.


H1 bulbs

These single-filament bulbs are for low-beam headlamps, high-beam headlamps, auxiliary fog and driving lamps. Fun facts: The H1 was the world's first-ever halogen automotive bulb, and may well be the most widely used type worldwide. It was introduced in Europe in 1962, and immediately revolutionized car lighting and roadway safety with its compact size and high output. It was finally legalized in the US...in 1997, three and a half decades later!

  • 55W Tungsram Plus+120 $35.18/pair

  • 100W Narva, Vosla, or Flösser: $37.18/pair




    H2 bulbs

    These single-filament bulbs are primarily found in auxiliary fog and driving lamps, though there have been a few low-beam and a few high-beam headlamps over the years that used them.

    • 55W Narva, Vosla, or Flösser: $23.18/pair

    • 100W Narva or Flösser: $35.18/pair


    H3 bulbs

    These single-filament bulbs are primarily used in auxiliary fog and driving lamps, but they've also been used in some headlamps, such as certain variants of the Marchal Amplilux. Fun Facts: The H3 was the world's first transverse-filament halogen car bulb, introduced in 1966. The transverse filament and short focal length facilitated the design of certain kinds of lamps that were difficult or impossible to make with axial-filament bulbs. H3 was legalized in the US in 1997, thirty-one years after its European introduction.

    • 55W Narva, Vosla, or Flösser: $23.18/pair

    • 55W Narva Plus+50: $31.18/pair

    • 100W Narva, Vosla, or Flösser: $35.18/pair



    H4 bulbs

    These 2-filament bulbs with P43t base are for high/low beam headlamps and Cibie BiOscar fog/drive beam lamps. Fun facts: The H4 was the world's first 2-filament halogen automotive bulb. It was introduced in Europe in 1971, and was used in many millions of European and Japanese headlamps starting in that year, but wasn't legalized in the US (where it was designated HB2 or 9003) until over two decades later, in 1992!

    • 60/55W Tungsram +120 (best of the bunch): $43.18/pair

    • 60/55W Narva or Flösser High Output +50: $38.00/pair

    • 100/55W Narva, Vosla, or Flösser or Philips Rallye: $35.18/pair

    • 100/90W Narva, Vosla, or Flösser or Philips Rallye: $41.18/pair

    • 130/100W Narva, Vosla, or Flösser or Philips Rallye: $51.18/pair




      H4 halogen bulbs on P45t base

      Upgrade your vintage European headlamps to modern-car light levels! These updated halogen bulbs (above left) fit and work correctly in all 1950's through 1980's European high/low beam headlamps originally equipped with tungsten R2 bulbs (above right). Light output is much higher, life is much longer.

      • 60/55W (standard halogen wattage) Narva, Vosla, or Flösser: $35.18/pair

      • 100/90W Narva, Vosla, or Flösser: $43.18/pair

      • 130/100W Narva, Vosla, or Flösser: $49.18/pair


      H7 bulbs

      These single-filament bulbs are found in the low beams, high beams and fog lamps of many European and Japanese vehicles made since the 1990s. Fun Fact: The H7, introduced in 1993, was the first new halogen headlamp bulb design type-approved to Europe's Regulation 37 in twenty years. It touched off a wave of research and development that saw a dozen new halogen bulb types introduced over the next 15 years.

      • 65-watt, 2100-lumen
        Ultra High Output Vosla (H9 burner on H7 base, race and special-purpose): $28.76/ea
        (or $24.45/ea for 12+ at a time)

      Exact replacement for the Osram 64217, which was discontinued several years ago. After a great deal of work, I have secured new availability of first-quality, German-made 65w - 2100 lumen H7 bulbs. They are in stock and now shipping! Send me an email to buy them.

All other bulb types can be furnished; if you don't see what you're after, please feel free to email. Please do not ask for overwattage 9004, 9005, 9006 or 9007 bulbs; they are unsafe and not for sale — see this PDF for a detailed explanation.
