    Default brighter /whiter headlight bulbs for a vec c

    i have one thats blown so need to replace. been told they are h7.

    what i want to know is can anyone recommend a brighter whiter standard bulb?
    ive never got used to driving in the dark with standard bulbs since having xenons on the gsi, as they were supurb. now i find standard lights really dull at night lol

    i dont want to go down the hid route with these lights, just want standard bulbs, so can anyone suggest any bulbs that are brighter and whiter? and dont want to spend alot on them either lol

    cheers in advance

    you dont need anything higher than 6k to see the difference, the higher the bluer on them, make sure you get a full kit, and yes they are legal - fitted as standard on some cars, and will pass mot`s, if not, 5 minute job to unplug and put your old bulbs in.

    If you don't want to fit the HiD's, before you go down that route, if you have maula height adjustment, try Duncan's tricl to raise the level, for some reason they're set very low standard. I did mine, fitted some xenon upgrade bulbs, now they're as good as my old Omega was. Makes a big difference.
