    clear full beam bulbs??

    I fitted HID'S in my coupe at the weekend. And wow!!! I would reccomend them to anybody, not sure i could ever go back to normal bulbs now.

    The only thing is as they are clear/white when i put them on full beam the standard full beam looks yellow and gash. Anyone know where i can get some white/clear ones. Been to halfords and they only do blue ones at £19.99 for one bulb!?!?!?!

    They'll prob be better, but when you compare them to the HID's, they will still be yellowish. Nothing will beat the crisp white colours of HID, except, another HID.
    I picked up 100w full beam bulbs like those, and also 100w fog light bulbs for about £15 all in.
    (and yes i know the law, so no preaching. I never use my fogs unless its foggy, and full beams when its a dark country road. And i ALWAYS turn them off when i see others!)

    Quite easy. Fiddley if you dont want to take the bumper off, but nimble fingers will get it done. Alternatively, jack up the side and do them. Prob quicker than taking the bumper off
