nightbreakers are decent

 

the real key to decent lights is you need a loom with relays - you can gain over a volt or sometimes two with a relay which results in much more output

 

see here - potential 2-3x output

 

 

  10.5V : 510 lumens
11.0V : 597 lumens
11.5V : 695 lumens
12.0V : 803 lumens
12.5V : 923 lumens
12.8V : 1000 lumens ←Rated output voltage
13.0V : 1054 lumens
13.5V : 1198 lumens
14.0V : 1356 lumens ←Rated life voltage

i have a relay loom on my polo and golf , work very well and also takes the load of the switches 

 

i chose to make my own inside a small project box but its the same idea as the link i put up...several others on ebay too if you want to shop around

I see. For that price don't think I can go wrong really. I get back to you when I'm stuck on installation .

very simple to fit but fine you can ask

 

put the relays somewhere dry , and you might find the alternator + post is easier to feed the relays that running it the battery
