Way better than Hella H4 eCode. I swapped just one headlight for comparison, and put the same 60/55w bulb back in. Side-by-side with Cibie on left an Hella on right. The Cibie was brighter, with wider pattern, and sharper cut-off. Google search for "Cibie Hella Daniel Stern" to find spectrometer graphs for real quantitative analysis.
Hella has more stray light above the cut-off which results in glare to oncoming traffic. With perfectly aimed lights, I still occasionally got flashed by cars coming towards me. With the Cibie, I was able to upgrade to 100/80w bulbs with no one ever flashing me! I would guesstimate there's twice as much light on the road now and much less going into other drivers eyes compared to before.
UPDATE: forgot to mention that the high-beam performance is also better with the Cibie light compared to Hella. When both aimed for optimum low-beam performance, the high-beams on the Hellas went into the trees! Not very useful unless you're a squirrel! The Cibie high-beam was tight and focused and stayed on the road 1km away!
I use this as a motorcycle headlight. I converted a new Royal Enfield to a 7" light, as it should be, in place of the pipsqueak 5.75" sealed beam the importer puts in. Newfangled stuff like LEDs are out; the RE is the best 1955 motorcycle being made today ... and a fancy modern-looking headlight would just be wrong. First I used a Minda (which came with the new 7" rim parts), and now this CIBIE. It has a good old-school look.
I set up a little test rack so I could compare headlight beam patterns in a reasonably scientific manner. I do all the tests with Hella 55W/60W H4 bulbs; easily available and seem to work well. In the evening (not dead of night) I pointed the lights at a picket fence about fifteen feet distant. First photo is the high beam, second is low beam. Ignore the slight tip counterclockwise; I didn't knock myself out leveling things for this test.
The high beam pattern puts most of the light in the center, where it should be, but doesn't leave the road directly in front or the entire world off to the sides entirely in the dark.
The low beam pattern is interesting. Cutoff is nice and sharp. I figure the little flare to the right is intended to help illuminate roadside signs without annoying oncoming drivers over to the left.
Everything looks good to me.
They installed easily without any issues into my Jeep, and the light pattern is very clear with a crisp cut off line that makes them easy to aim. In my opinion, they are much more aesthetically pleasing over the factory headlight housings that bulge out of the grille and make me think of a small fishbowl. If you own a 2007-17 Jeep Wrangler JK, these are a great option if you can't afford or don't want to go with LED headlights.
UPDATE: After playing in the mud with my Jeep, I noticed about 1/2" of standing water inside one light housing. So be aware that these are not watertight. The water did not affect the bulb or light output, but did have to be drained and cleaned out.
Take great care in removing the very small screws that hold the headlight retaining ring to the headlight bucket. Make SURE to use a tight-fitting screwdriver bit, and put a tiny dab of anti-seize compound on the screws before reinstalling. The screws on my '96 car were just shy of the point of becoming rusted-in. You want these screws to come out undamaged, and to be re-useable because it may be easier to remove the entire headlight assembly in order to change the bulb than to go in from the rear. In any event, if the lens/reflector assembly gets damaged, you want the small fixing screws to NOT be a problem.

There is a dark spot in the middle of the low beam, the high beam is spot on. Adjusted the low beam to be correct and then the high beam is out of focus.Read more
