    Default Vectra C sidelights

    Can anyone recommend a 'white' sidelight bulb for the vectra? Every bulb I've used looks yellow in comparison to the other lights. Thanks.

    Most folk like myself will say........ MTEC 501 bulbs. They give out a good white light.

    About £5-£7 a pair

    I just got the m-tec ones from hid-direct...

    they look a damn sight better but i think they have a hint of blue in them,

    still alot better than that awful yellow though

    i paid £11 for two pairs including delivery, well worth it though i'd say

    I had Mtec 501's in my sidelights and yesturday it failed its MOT on it and the fact I had LED bulbs for the rear number plate light which were far brighter than the original. I now have fitted the LED's in the sidelights which are far better then the Mtec's. The led'd have the canceler in them so you dont get bulb out warnings.
