 Better than the original T3s? You bet. But not all halogen sealed beams are created equal. Let me do some digging as I have some contacts who are highly knowledgeable on this topic!

Now, I can tell you right now, the Cibie E codes will WAY outperform even the best sealed beams, so, it's up to each of you how much is enough. Personally, there's no such as headlights that are too good.

Subject: <VV> Headlight Upgrade

I am wanting to upgrade the headlight brightness on a '65.  I am curious to know 

everyone's thoughts on this subject.  I would like to go to a halogen bulb; I 

see there are two types: one appears to be a drop-in replacement and the other 

has a 5.75" housing with replaceable bulbs, any experience with either?  I have 

always heard the wiring is suspect when going to these higher power lamps, and 

looking at the wiring, I would agree (16g looks a little small for the current 

required).  Any words of wisdom as for going to a relay setup supplying direct 

battery voltage?
