This is my first post on the site so I hope that I have listed it in the right section... I need some help finding the right dipped headlight bulbs for a factory fitted xenon light (2003)
I am unsure what type of bulb I need - (I think it might be a H7???) I have just had a set of halo sidelights installed on my car which are alot bluer compared to the xenons and I would like the xenons to match.
I have tried to do some research and I think I need a set of 6000k bulbs but I dont know where to get hold of them or what is good or bad about cheap ones etc...
Sorry for all the questions but I am a newbie, I hope someone can help me
Thanks for the link Jakeyjp, I will give Mike a call at some point... sorry to ask another question but will 6000k bulbs be street legal (i.e. not too blue in colour) I don't want to invest in something that's not 'above board'
If you google that or search for 1 of those types in Ebay, there are plenty of 6000k bulbs around, I guess the 6000k aren't too blue, 8000k is very blue and more likely to gt you pulled over by the police.
You so that if you pay more then they will be manufactured better - is it the old chestnut 'you get what you pay for'? Would £30-40 for a set of D2R be a waste of money or am I better off spending more for a better build?
Yeah it's the same old chestnut, I presume would go down to beam alignment that sort of thing. Mine were £30 a pair, Previous to that I had bought a set for £70 a pair. The only difference I could notice were that the cheaper set were not as blue than the more expensive set, but still give off a good beam pattern and light discharge.
