    The Philips are very much white only, best ones I came across that where road legal where the bosch ones, really good blue/white mix, downside being after 3 months I had got through 5 replacement bulbs and at £20 a go wasnt cheap!

    Depends if you want to stick strictly to road legal bulbs as to how blue/white you will get. Ive used technically not legal bulbs for about 10months now without a problem and the car even got through its MOT with them in!

    If seebetter have stopped doing 100w H7 bulbs, does anyone know somewhere else that sell Xenon 100W white bulbs at a decent price?

    I've had the Philips ones.

    They are quite white, but definitely no blue. They will last though, as the actual glass is blue, rather than a paint. They give about the same light as the 30% plus halogen ones.

    There was a post a few days ago about some bulbs on ebay.

    The web site is www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk

    Xenon bright H7 headlight bulbs at £9.99 plus £2.50 postage.

    Someone has fitted them and they seem a lot brighter than std.

    I am going to try some, as the ring blue ones I have which cost £25, are no better than std.

    The above site also do a full bulb set, which includes clear sidelight bulbs and dipped bulbs, in fact a whole set for the car. They are £34.99 (£2.50 postage again) which is a very good price.

    PIAA are the only ones that are 'blue' that ive came across but are blatantly illegal! Road legal blue tinted bulbs do have a blue bit to them but its a really small band that can only be seen at the right angle, if you want proper blue go with the illegal ones, if you want to stick on the right side of the law have to put up with a bit of blue!

    Just go for the ones from Autobulbsdirect.

    At £12.50 (inc postage) they are a steal and look well bright.

    At the price you can order a spare pair which u could keep in the car, the Plods now do you if u have a headlight bulb out! Mate at work got fined £30, and the bulb only went on his way home!
