    Default Fog Light upgrade bulbs ?

    Hi guys can anyone advise on a good foglight H3 bulb to match up with HID 50W 6K main beam. Have put Nightbreaker plus in full beam which are a bit yellow. Also anyone in my area recommend someone to repair the adjusters as one has come off and does not allow any adjustment, my fault trying to get more light on the road and it popped off. Any help or point in the direction of a decent garage who will fix it

    You won't need the fogs now you have Xenons. Xenon light does not reflect back as much and you will find dip beam just as good or better than the fogs....

    Maybe he just wants to look cool instead of using the fogs for their intended purpose?

    No idea why the OP has fitted HID lighting to his main beams though. Far better to have fitted them for dipped beam use because of the delay in getting them to light up and it can shorten their life by continual switching on and off.

    I think he means main beam as in dipped beam as he states he has fitted Nightbreaker plus in full beam.

    Ah!

    Main beam and full beam mean the same thing to me.

    sorry meant dipped for HIDS, not interested in looking cool, you would realise if you saw me, just looking for decent performing lights. My lights are nice and bright but pointing in crazy directions RH full beam crosses the LH side and points up in to the sky and doesn't hit the road at all, I really need then adjusted badly, local village garage has look at them twice and say they are not adjustable thats the way they are supposed to be they also can't fix the LH dip which has come off the adjuster as it doesn't move at all when you turn the allen key in the yellow thingy. Advise help anyone,, really frustrated that I've got these cracking lights and can still see zip

    They might bother those drivers with blue lights on the roof. I think it's something like a £40 or £60 fixed penalty fine for causing undue dazzle.

    Michaelangelo, Did you have any luck sorting out your main beam aiming ? My Dip Beams are great with Orsam Nightbreaker Bulbs but like yours my Offside High Beam Crosses over to the left and leaves the offside of the road un-illuminated.
    I have tried to Adjust my fog lights after discovering that the are only just illuminating the area immediately in front of the bonnet ! (Typical first time we have fog and the fog lights were useless !) But the adjusting screws just turn without any change in the fog light aim is this just the screw becoming disengaged from a captive nut or is it going to more than this ?
