Today i accidently tapped the halogen light on my roof, it went loads brighter... naturally i went round tapping the rest and they all did the same thing.


at first i thought ide cracked the glass but i cant see any damage what so ever.

random topic i know but its annoying me :lol:

Maybe you disturbed the gas?

i bet they will go pop.. i would guess that you have shortened the filament, they allways go brighter just before they die. house bulbs do the same thing, when i use them in the driveway working on the car, if i drop or bang it, it goes nice and bright... for about an hour, then blink.. darkness :)
