    Default Some new bulbs to try!

    Ordered some Osram Night Breakers for the headlights and some Philips Blue Visions for the side lights. Had to get them as one of the MTEC sidelights went a few months ago so put the originals back in, and last week, one of the Philips X-Treme's I fitted at the same time as the MTEC's also went.

    Let's see how they compare. Some good reviews on here but the life is an issue.

    how easy is it to fit HID's? and how are they to buy? i found out the other night that the standard lights are very poor in the dark, or then again it could be just me.

    they are easy to do ,just need take the front bumper off which is only held on by a few screws. some facelift models have had the bulb warning come on and others just plug and play no problems . would take under 1 hour to do . khalid
