GE 9006NHP/BP2 Nighthawk Platinum Headlight Bulbs (Low Beam), Pack of 2
$18.99 UPDATE: they’re back to their usual $30, ugh
I have no firsthand experience with these, only Sylvania Silverstars, which I’ve found to be perfectly adequate. They’re about $30 for two.
The Amazon ad box to the right is for bulbs that fit 1997 Volvo 850s. Check Amazon’s fitment guide to get the right bulbs for your Volvo. And make sure you’re buying low-beam bulbs if that’s what you want. It’s easy to mistake high and low-beam products.
If you use that or the Amazon link at the top of MVS Volvo Forum pages it helps this site stay on the Web.
The Nighthawk Platinums rate a 3.7 out of 5 stars. To compare apples-apples, my Silverstars rate a 3.6 out of 5 stars at Amazon. Here’s a comment on the GE Nighthawk Platinums: I traded in a Volkswagen Jetta GLI for a Jeep Grand Cherokee for 4×4 AWD ruggedness. Sorely missing my HID headlights, I started looking for HID kits for the Jeep. I looked and looked but didn’t like the aftermarket appearances and effort it would take.
I gave up.
One day, weeks later, I was driving at night and decided that the stock OEM bulbs were NOT worth settling for. I started looking for some good replacement bulbs, as I didn’t want to get a full HID kit.
GE Nigthhawks have been a lifesaver at night. I’ve dodged deer thanks to these bulbs. These are great bulbs that give great HID intensity light.
