I have a set and although I live in SA, I have driven through NSW with them on the XGTs. They make the light appear more "white" than the normal "yellow"......nothing to do with the light being "blue".....so I don't imagine there should be any issues.

I love the infra red covers.. a great way to warm your hands up at night, but not much help for driving unless you have Night vision Goggles on hehehe... but thats a bit uncool to other drivers NOT FUNNY

Lights have to be white - only Foglights are allowed to be yellow.

ADR13 specifies light colour for Main Beam, Dipped Beam and Foglamp.

I couldn't see a definition of white there.

Oh wow, coloured lenses.

If only they manufactured a circular magazine so you could select any colour lens without stopping........Bling! Bling!

The IPF's serve me fine. They have clear "coloured" lenses on them which do nothing but protect the glass:-))

Its got nothing to do with looks. Apparently the cyrstal blue covers give a clearer light under certain conditions.

seb,

Clearer light???

You are out in the Mulga and it is as black as the far side of the moon. You turn on your white spotlights to see way down the road.
I don't think it matters what coloured white light you have.

Also, there is generally no other spotlights (unless in a convoy) to compare if "mine is brighter that yours".

I believe it gets down to robustness and reliability and both the Lightforce and IPF brands have proven themselves. Maybe that's why they are at the upper end of the price range.

Now, my spots are adequate, but I hardly ever use them at all.
I am set up in camp with a glass of red and the camp fire set ready to ignite, well before it has gotten dark.

I am of the opinion that "white" light is more important for normal low/high beam "driving" lights around town.
This is where a relatively cheap upgrade from OEM globes to something like the Philips VisionPlus is a worthwhile move.
