IPF - Headlight Replacements part # 820H
M17 - Magic Blub H4 55/60Watt - marine blue glow
The install process is simple. Just like changing a regular headlamp. The only note of caution is: DO NOT HANDLE ANY HALOGEN BULBS with barehands. In fact, do not let the bulb come in contact with any skin, oil, grease or french fries. When the lamp is activated it will burn out quicker if it's dirty. It is advised to use gloves, or handle the bulbs with a soft rag.
The bulbs used are the Magic H4 bulbs that have a phosphorous
ring at the base of the lamp. This ring helps to maintain
the high operating temperature and produce a brilliant light
that is very white.
The cost of the IPF replacement headlights are very competitive when compared with Bosch and Hella. I have used both before and noticed the difference in quality of the IPF units. The IPF units have a thicker lens and a heavier feel to them. The quality of the lens is impressive. In both the Hella and Bosch units I've owned before I detected imperfections in the fluting and glass, not so with the IPF units. They appear to me to be of much higher quality overall. It should be noted that these lamps are not dot approved. But then again, neither were the Hella's or Bosch's I've used before. Regardless, all of these replacement headlights are an improvement over the standard headlight and all provide the European style of light distribution. ARB selected IPF after comparing other brands, I can see why they did.
If you live where it gets dark at night, this kit is for you.

lift kit, also imported by ARB USA. That review may be found at:
