  • H7C Bulbs

    I've come across H7C bulbs a few times on the internet but don't know a huge amount about them other than they are aftermarket H7 HID bulbs which are a little bit shorter.

    What I'm wondering is are these bulbs supposed to produce a better beam pattern than the more common H7 hid bulbs as they are closer in size to an original H7 bulb or are they just shorter to fit in tighter headlight housings?

    Thanks

    There is no way for them to produce a better beam pattern, only thing it can do it have better clearance in the head light.

      here's my LOL thread on so-called high end HID projector performance H7RC HID Kits (and LED kits in H11 applications)

      you can draw your own conclusions

          What exactly are you referring to when you say better clearance in the head light?

            Our H3C bulbs are shorter physically than the H3 bulbs, the "C" representing a shorter glass capsule. In shallow housings, this is necessary.

              So other than being able to fit into more confined headlamp housings there is no advantages over a conventional h7 hid aftermarket bulb?

              I was half thinking due to being more similar in size to a standard h7 bulb that they might give better alignment or beam pattern...or not lol

                Better, maybe? But still very very far removed from ideal. There is no way to place an HID bulb in a halogen based reflector/projector and have it be ideal. Halogen and HID are two completely different light sources.

                  More clearance = more distance between the end of the bulb and the cutoff shield
