To be sure that you have bought an original OSRAM LED product, OSRAM offers its customers the so-called Trust Program. This makes it possible to identify counterfeits. Further details can be found here: The OSRAM Trust Program

The design of the OSRAM NIGHT BREAKER LED is characterised by its uniqueness in the combination of two functions - "heat dissipation" and "optimum reflector design" . The optics are rounded off by a compact lamp size for optimum fitting accuracy in the headlamp.

Furthermore, the lamps are vibration-resistant to impacts, for example due to uneven road surfaces.

Quality and performance make every OSRAM product an OSRAM original. Unfortunately, product piracy has reached a point where it is difficult to visually distinguish between original and counterfeit.

OSRAM has therefore integrated security features into the production process that allow you to authenticate your lamps online in two simple steps.

OSRAM offers a 4-year guarantee for all NIGHT BREAKER LED lamps. One extra year of guarantee can be secured if the NIGHT BREAKER LED lamps are purchased at and installed by a professional workshop. Find more info here.

Approval for the legal NIGHT BREAKER LED is a very complex process for each vehicle model. Therefore, no statement on a concrete time estimate is possible at the present time, we hope for your understanding. OSRAM is continuously working on further development.
