    Recommendations on MK4 Astra Main Beam Bulbs

    Basically ive got blue bulbs for my main beam and dipped beam but imo they look tacky.

    I just want something clear, im getting Phillips Silver Vision indicator bulbs and have got PIAA Sidelights and am getting an HID Kit for dipped beam.

    Which bulbs would people recommend going for, i believe the main beam on an Astra G is HB3 9005, is that correct?

    HB3/9005 is correct in normal headlamps

    Personally Id get another HID kit - this is what I'll be doin on mine in the forthcomin months....and for less than £70 u cant really complain

    Failing that then any decent "strictly for off road use only" 80 or 100w bulbs should suffice

    i use halfords super brilliance in mine at the moment. Plenty bright enough and just look simple and un-fussy. they were on buy one get one free when i got them a few months ago as well. Might be a cheaper alternative than another HID kit but it's down to personal choice!

    Try Philips Diamond Vision.
    They are supposed to be the best in their ranges.
    Don't see them very often in this country though.
