    Default Brightest Bulbs for Vectra

    Just wondering if anyone can recommend some good bright white bulbs for the Vectra... I don't want to replace the lights themselves really, maybe just the bulbs if anyone's got any ideas. Just for standard legal road use.

    Any ideas would be welcome.

    I've just replaced mine with Ring Xenon Max, they're never going to be as good as hid's but they're much better than standard

    Yeah, that's the trouble.. and I'm on the road at night quite a lot. I heard on another forum that 55W is the brightest allowed on the road? Well these would definitely be out of the question if that's right.

    Have a look at THESE

    These are supposed to be 2 x brighter than standard and only 55W (so should be legal). Also they're white not blue so should be fine on that score? The only thing I don't get is 'gas charged'? They should be OK as a straight replacement, shouldn't they?

    Sorry if I sound clueless, but if anyone can advise I'd be grateful.

    I mean, they're dead cheap so i could give them a go and just see what they're like I suppose.
