    I'm also looking out for some bulbs.
    Are these the best xenon-gas bulbs around? Is the light that much better than a Halfords/Motaman bulb for example?

    [Halfords sell their own brand for £9.89 for a single H7 bulb.]


    Also what about the 'full-beam' bulbs?

    Not sure what is best as I've never seen the Halfords ones!

    You can get pretty much all of the bulbs in the Bluevision type, I have got a set of H1's which I am going to have fitted for main beams!

    I use Bosch bulbs in my car. though they are the H4 fitment. I use the ultra blue ones, rather than standard. love them too, much better than the crappy standard ones
