    New xenon bulbs any good?

    Are these any good to go in smoked GSI style headlights, or just a waste of money?

    Want to get rid of the yellow look to my side and headlight bulbs. Thanks

    there was someone on here selling the new slim line ballast ones someone in the southwest region.

    i have 6000K in both my main and dips and they are white, with a tiny hint (real tiny) of blue.

    hmmm yeah thats another point.... Id need a hid kit for my mains and my dips, are they diff bulbs?
    Or would i just near 2 sets of the same kit?


    :Edit:

    I read the how to and it said i needed to cut and modify the bulb holder thingy.

    But if i bought this kit, http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Astra-Mk4-6k-U...3286.m20.l1116

    Would i still need to do that?
    At it says it comes with "2 x special Astra mk4 holders"

    the 'special' mk4 holders are just the normal ones with a hole in the back to let the wores out, as shown in the guide

    Are they different bulbs for dipped and mains though?

    I got 2 sets of H7's today, and I didn't bother to check previously what ones I would need... I'll be fitting them this weekend, so any advice would be greatly appreciated!
