They are dangerous, poor quality counterfeits that could end up blinding oncoming vehicles, provide poor road illumination and do not have precision mounts that can lead to the electrics burning out. The lamps are not homologated which means they wouldn’t pass a vehicle inspection.

They could even damage the car’s onboard computer system which could cost a fortune to repair or replace. Philips have warned sellers, both online and offline such as spares shops and garages that they will be subject to litigation if caught but have asked for the help of buyers. If you buy a Philips bulb you can check online to see if it is original and report it if it’s a fake.

Chinese Influence Makes European Cars Glow

Thursday, 15. May 2014

We have seen, over the last few years, some changes to car lighting.

VW/Audi are already looking into this technology for the outside as well as looking at new ways of lighting the interior with different types of ambient lighting. According to VW’s design director in China, Simon Loasby, we will see many more Chinese influenced design changes being introduced into cars for the European market.

One such design development will be the windscreen air filter, seen to be essential in China due to the high levels of pollution. No I haven’t got a clue as to how it would work either! What next? Built in Wok and free Geisha girl? Hmm, don’t get me started. By Graham Hill

The Real Reason For Car Production Delays

Monday, 2. November 2009

I have been quite scathing about the extending lead times that car manufacturers have been quoting, questioning the management and accusing some manufacturers of using these extending lead times to manipulate the market prices of their cars.
