    Default recommend me some white sidelight bulbs

    I have 6000k HIDs and got MTEC sidelight bulbs. One of the sidelight bulbs popped recently so I'm looking to replace. I found the MTEC ones quite dim compared with the yellow standards. Can anyone recommend me some white sidelight bulbs that are as bright as the standards but not yellow?

    Cheers

    thats what I had previously as per first post, they seemed pretty dim compared with standard bulbs but they were pretty white. Looking for something white and bright!

    I had the mtecs and found they went really dull after a fair bit of use, now have these and are loads brighter, more like standard builbs but whiter.
