What h4 bulb?

Trying to narrow down h4 bulb choices for hella ecodes ? Will be upgrading wiring harness as well. Is the average lifespan of these bulbs with increased power all 6-9months? Was originally thinking of going with osram 70/65 bulbs

I went with Narva 90/100. Just be sure to properly aim them to keep from blinding folks. You will be impressed.

I purchased the Osram 70/65 Bulbs when I purchased my E-Code ( Cibies ) conversion from Daniel Stern Lighting ( Daniel Stern Lighting Consultancy and Supply ) TWO YEARS AGO. Never an issue with the Bulbs, Harness, Housings during that period of time. I'm retired and spend a tremendous amount of time Off Highway, More Off than On Highway.
I was worried that Vibration and Jarring would be an issue with the H-4. BUT
happy to report that has NOT been the case.

FWIW

Aside from PROPER AIMING, be sure YOU NEVER TOUCH the Quartz Bulb with your Bare Fingers / Hands → BUT you NEW this ALREADY
