Please make sure you read your manual before buying a bulb replacement.

I bought a pair of Nighbreakers Plus H11 to swap my OEM bulbs and they DO NOT fit on the VT. Now I am stuck with a pair of bulbs that I can't use. And what's even worse, I opened the packaging so I can't return them. If anybody is interested in getting them at a good price, please let me know. :) They are H11 Nightbreakers Plus.

The manual states that he low beams are H7HPLL/H11B* (* meaning if equipped), and yes mine has the H11B. I don't think the Nightbreakers Plus come in H11B. Anyone out there with another suggestion for bulb replacement without having to do any mods to them?

Check the ones in your car before buying new ones!!!! Lesson learned! :crying:

complain enough and they will take them back. Unless its posted they cant refuse a return for non fitment.
I guess I could try that. Now the problem is finding an H11b that is like the NightbreakerPlus.

Hi new member here. So I just bought a pair of H11B replacement bulbs and was wondering if you need to remove the front bumper and headlight enclosure to replace? I notice the space to access the bulb is pretty tight and can't seem to remove the existing ones. Thanks in advanced.

Hi oppa. I did not take off the bumper at all. I have small hands, and yes, it was very tight in there, but doable. First remove the covers. Then take note how the blue dot on the bulb is in relation to the back opening of the headlight. Facing the front they should be to the South East of the opening, so bottom right. If looking from the drivers position, they will be to the South West, so bottom left. Notice how far up from the bottom the blue dot lands, this will help you know how far you need to twist the bulb for it to be secure. You need to twist counter clockwise to remove it. The first time is pretty hard. I used some bent pliers to help me undo them. Make sure not to scratch or touch the bulbs; I wore latex gloves to be safe. Line the bulb with the notch, push it in, then twist clockwise until you get the dot back to where you marked it before taking it off. Then replace the cap. I did it in about 30 minutes. Gotta be patient and take it slow.

Please post pics of before and after to see the difference, if you can.

Thanks for the detailed explanation vtlover! I wasn't familiar with the H11B bulbs and if they were the twist or unplug type. Anyways I have rather big hands so it's going to be challenge but i will try using the bent pliers. I'm glad i dont need to remove the bumper. I will post pics for you guys once I get them installed. I got the 8000k version hoping they're not too blue.

Great some pictures to compare. I knew 8000k would not be bright, but surely bluer, and it shows on the picture clearly. I just wrote them asking about the difference between the 5500-6000k and the Dimond Blue Night ones. I think the latter is much brighter. I will order as soon as I hear from them.

BTW, how did you do with replacing the bulbs? Did you have to take off the bumper?

Yea I saw the diamond blue ones but didn't like the blue tint. Anyways please post pics if you get them. Took your advice and used bent pliers to remove existing bulbs but twisted one too hard and broke the plastic part. It is still useable but I'm really hoping the 6000k's will be bright enough so I don't need to install back the stock ones.

Ok, I will let you know what they say about the difference in light, brightness, and color between the two. But if I read correctly, the Diamond Blue Night Vision bulb is brighter than the 6000k and is not blue tinted. Let's see what they say. Oh yes, you need to be very delicate when twisting on or off these bulbs.

BTW, I still don't see you on the map. Not a lot of users online at this time. Well I gotta hit the bed; gotta work tomorrow. Talk to you soon.

Today I installed the Osram H7 65W bulbs that I ordered. On the pic you see left the new bulb and right the old one. The manual tells shit, if you arent a superhero you cant replace bulbs on this car with the headlights in place. I removed the headlight and part of the front bumper. Couldn´t wait until night and now after a little test I am very very happy with the result, almost 2 times brighter than before and I have tested temperature after driving with the lights for about 20 minutes, the headlamp was still cool from outside. I would not recommend to take higher wattage bulbs than the 65W else the inside of the lamp might melt. If you cant get these bulbs in the US, shoot me a PM.

I wish they had these for the H11B bulb.

Oppa, hi! This is what they said:

Subject: Re: QUESTION ABOUT AUTOLUMINATION BULBS

HI-

The difference is mainly the tone or color appearance of the light.

The 6k and 8k are very similar. The 8K is slightly more blue.

The Diamond blue is more of a cyan color and the tone varies slightly based on the viewing angle...like the facets of a diamond.

Here is an image that illustrates pretty closely:
http://autolumination.com/images/auto_bulbs/halogen_headlight_colors.gif

Colorized halogen bulbs are not really any brighter than stock bulbs. The only real difference is color. For extreme brightness, you would want one of our new 50 watt digital AC HID kits.
HID Conversion Kits, Xenon Lights, Headlights, Bulbs

This is what I wrote them:

Let me know how the 6000k looks ok. I can't order them just yet.

Thanks vtlover. Sounds like not much of a difference in terms of brightness. Not really digging the diamond blue cyan color. I will let you know how the 6000k look.

Interesting - the "Diamond Blue" ones don't look as tinted as the 6000/8000k bulbs.

They remind me of the Nokya "Cosmic White" I used to have in my Scion. Granted those were 80w bulbs so brighter than stock.

Exactly! The dimond blue is a cyan tint, and in the diagram they provide, it seems to be brighter than the 6000k, but it may just be the way it shows on the PC screen.
