    I presume its for side lights? If so you need 501's, yeah they are good mate, accompany HiD's very well and do not cause any flickering or bulb error lights on the dash. Im sure others will tell you about LED's too.

    I tried the mtecs but found the light they gave off like a dull blue colour. Got philips blue vision and the sidelights look extremely white and crisp

    it does say that yes, I bought some of the MTEC white ... brighter than standard ...
    I didn't want to go down the route of fitting full HID kit, but after wasting cash on these MTEC bulbs I bought HID and can guarantee you it will be the best £65 you will spend on your car.

    MTEC are WORSE than the standard bulb. They look great and bright when you look at the car, but if you want to see the road at night,.... forget it.

    There's a ton of thread on the forum, just do a search and have a read buddy - 99% on here will agree.
