Products!

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


Where's the shopping cart...?

There isn't one. Choosing automotive lighting devices and bulbs is a fair 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 ( tech@danielsternlighting.com ) 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.


Important Notes

All products below are clearly marked as to their regulatory-approval status. All products are sold and intended only for legal uses. Anybody selling headlamps who doesn't tell you this (and answer your questions about it) is not being honest.

Shipping is available at any service level offered by any common carrier—FedEx ground is standard to US addresses, Postal shipping to Canadian addresses. On orders under $100, please specify if a signature is required for delivery. On orders over $100, signature is mandatory.

Returns are accepted within 30 days of merchandise delivery only with prior approval, and only on unused, uninstalled items in original packaging. A restocking fee (generally 20%) will apply, unless the return is due to an error on our part. Most special orders are non-returnable. Bulb returns cannot be accepted.

Relay Installation Kits
for headlamps and auxiliary lamps

Thin factory wiring starves bulbs!

Click here for more information.
These parts packs help you feed full power to headlamp bulbs. 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. In most cases, the vehicle's factory wiring remains uncut.

Wire is not supplied 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.

Top-quality bulbs


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


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 Narva or Flösser Plus+30: $11.59/ea

  • 55W Narva or Flösser Plus+50 $15.59/ea

  • 100W Narva or Flösser: $17.59/ea

About +30 & +50 Bulbs:
"+30" and "+50" bulbs are standard-wattage items with higher filament luminance and tighter filament focus. They give better headlight performance than standard bulbs, with an attendant shorter bulb lifespan. They have colourless clear glass so all the filament's light reaches the road. There is no significant difference to be found among bulbs of any given type made by the reputable makers (Philips/Narva, Osram, Tungsram/GE, Fl?sser, in no particular order).




    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 or Flösser: $11.59/ea

    • 100W Narva or Flösser: $17.59/ea


    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 or Flösser: $9/ea

    • 55W Narva or Flösser Plus+50: $15.59/ea

    • 100W Narva or Flösser: $17.59/ea



    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 Narva or Flösser High Output +30: $14.59/ea

    • 60/55W Narva or Flösser Plus+50 *: $19/ea

    • 70/65W Osram Rallye $21.59/ea

    • 85/80W Osram Rallye $24.59/ea

    • 100/55W Narva or Flösser or Philips Rallye: $17.59/ea

    • 100/90W Narva or Flösser or Philips Rallye: $20.59/ea

    • 130/100W Narva or Flösser or Philips Rallye: $25.59/ea


    About +30 & +50 Bulbs:
    "+30" and "+50" bulbs are standard-wattage items with higher filament luminance and tighter filament focus.

      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.

      • 45/40W (original tungsten wattage) Narva or Flösser: $11.59/ea

      • 60/55W (standard halogen wattage)Narva or Flösser: $14.59/ea

      • 100/90W Narva or Flösser: $21.59/ea

      • 130/100W Narva or Flösser: $24.59/ea


      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.

      • 65W Osram or Flösser Ultra High Output (2100 lumen, H9 burner on H7 base, race and special-purpose use): $24.76/ea Sale! $22.79/ea


      About this bulb:

      The Flösser and Osram bulbs are electrically, optically, functionally, and qualitatively identical, but they are labelled differently. They are both built in Germany to exactly the same specification: an H9 burner on an H7 base, 65w at 12.0v, 2100 lumens at 13.2v. Flösser's box says "80w" while Osram's says "65w". This is not an actual power difference, it is a test voltage difference. Flösser power-rates their bulb at 13.5v rather than 12.0v. For any/all filament bulbs, the wattage rises exponentially to the power 1.6 with voltage increase. So a bulb rated 65w at 12.0v will be rated 78.5w (printed as 80w) at 13.5v. It's not two different bulbs, just two different test protocols. On the test bench, the Osram "65w" bulbs and the Flösser "80w" bulbs all test out at between 63.8 and 65.4 watts at a constant 13.2 volts.

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.
