    Default Bulbs to match my HID's

    I've recently upgraded my headlamps to 6000K Hid's, I'm now looking to upgrade the main beam and fog bulb's to match the colour.

    Any suggestions on Bulbs that may match.

    You could do HIDS in both if you want, or just do a search on ebay for 6000k bulbs plenty "normal" bulbs to match your HID colour on fleabay. I do really need to get some for my foglights, the original ones look terrible next to the HIDS.

    Thanks for that,

    i've got the mtec 501's in the side light's and yes they are a perfect match your right, it's the main beam bulb and fog's i want as they look very yellow now compared to the other lamps.

    HIDS Direct is where i got them from.

    For "white" non HIDS bulbs, HIDS Direct do these for your fogs and main. Be warned - they give off a white light but you won't see much at night. Been there, done it . http://www.hids-direct.co.uk/mtec-xenon-upgrade-bulbs/

    I've just ordered from HIDS-4-US
    main beam:
    http://www.hids4us.com/index.php?rou...product_id=113

    they also recommended for side lights:
    http://www.hids4us.com/index.php?rou...&product_id=92
    however these are £13.99 a pair! I emailed and asked if they had the MTEC XENON SUPER WHITE 501 W5W BULBS SIDELIGHTS and they replied that the 501 are not can-bus compliant where-as theirs were

    any comments on this please?... do the 501's work without any issues at all?

    Chewy - these MTEC 501's don't give you any errors whatsover. Many have used them on here without a problem. http://www.hids-direct.co.uk/mtec-mi...hts-p-369.html

    501 is the bulb model number (also known as a W5W bulb). It won't give any errors because it's a 5watt bulb and therefore draws the correct amount of current.
