    Mate, how long have you had these bulbs?

    The reason that I am asking is that, I bought a set of unbranded bulbs for my other car and the blue-ish effect was only a case of bulb paint on normal bulbs and they melt as soon as they were plugged in! Cheers.

    PIAAs are really good bulbs BUT they cost a fortune, lol, IMO is the best alternative to HIDs oe xenons.

    Hi mate, i work for HALFORDS. the bulbs upgrade or otherwise we do are all made by RING just halfords branded. So ring bulbs tend to be good quality and last a wee while. However same bulbs on ebay for far less. I paid £4.79 + £2.99 P&P and i got x2 H7 h.i.d look bulbs blue/silver tipped and x2 h.i.d look 501. had in a couple of weeks and are fine. a company called ACEPARTS, good but slow delivery! :-( i have now upgraded every single bulb on front. h7, 501, hb3, silver indactor, fogs. and all done for around £20 off ebay... bargain!!!
