Cibie Or Hella H4 headlights?


Recommended Posts

Cibie or Marchal are the lights of choice--as pointed out, better beam pattern and a sharp enough cutoff on low beam that you really don't need fog lights. The really cool Cibies are the old incandescent ones with concave lenses--no bug splats!

The only advantage to Hellas are that the lens is flat; if you have the factory accessory headlight wash/wipe kit, it works better with a flat lens.

+1 for daniel stern (and he sells both Cibie and Hella, and will give you info on the pros and cons of both.)


I've bought my Cibies from Daniel Stern. They're awesome. Daniel gives great technical support, but he's a one man show, so you may have to exercise some patience if he happens to be out of town or something like that. This is not a complaint, just a head's up. I recommend him highly.
