    new bulbs

    ive got to order some new bulbs that dont shine yellow light out and help me actaully see whats happening in these spendid days we are having

    saw the thread on "SeeBetteR Autolights give astra-sport members discount" and was interested in buying some but didnt want to mess up.

    i understand that i need 3 sets of bulbs (the parking lights, the dipped lights and the beems.) please correct me if im wrong anywhere.

    which type of bulb do i need for each of the following lights? there are pics of three bulbs in that thread are they the ones that will cover me?

    Also which clear/blue lights will be suitable for my fogs.
    gsi front, sri turbo rear, bk299's, 2x15" diamond m3's and a dls a6 I need more bass ... 1200 rms and counting

    You will need to get a set of the Halfords or Phillips Blue side light bulbs, as Sam only sells the headlight types (BTW those sidelight bulbs from Halfords last about 6 months before the blue tint goes brown RIP OFF).

    You need a 9005 and an H7 for the main set (Dips and Mains). I would advise not fitting the fogs with the white/blues, as these are primarily for poor light & weather conditions (unless you count pissing off other road users as a hobby).

    I have SBA Blue/Whites as the main bulbs, white LEDs as parking/side lights and the Phillips All Weather as my fogs (they are more yellowy than standard, but cut into fog like you wouldn't believe, plus for show use, they really show out the mains as white) I think the Fogs on a G are H1 (?), the standard spotlight type with a wire off.

    Steve's right, the Halfords sidelight bulbs are crap, the Philips ones are much better...

    Sam's out of H7 at the moment though

    i just want to keep it all sorta co-ordinated , so if ive got a blue/clearish light from the lights it would look a bit silly to have a more yellow light from the fogs imo. :?
