    White bulbs (headlights) help!.

    Hi,

    Im trying 2 work out how expensive it would be 2 change all the front light bulbs and fogs so that they would all give a white light.
    I bought the car with LED bulbs in the sidelights but one of these has blown. It gave a nice white light compared to the rest.
    I went to halfords and bought their bulbs but they r pants!. Really yellow and dull. The guy told me it was hard to get all the bulbs showing the same light (true?).

    So would like to know where to get some bulbs that do what i require and also exactly what bulb goes where!.

    Many thanks

    you can get a set of white bulbs from eBay for about £8, won't be as white as LED's but I had them before getting HID's and they are a lot better than standard bulbs.

    White bulbs are also pointless in fog lights.

    Check this out, the bulb is blue when it arrives, not like in the photo, and it lights a nice white light, far better than leds, it terms of blowing all the time

    Halford Xenon bulbs are good mate. I have a set in mine. they shine white and I even get flashed in the dark by people thinking I'm on main beams. So then I put my main beams on too which also have the halfords xenon bulbs in

    P.S. They're also on BOGOF
    Gaz

    No longer owns an Astra


    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
