    Default What bulbs do you use? (No HIDS)

    Hey guys,

    What bulbs do you all use? Mainly for exterior lights (side/indicator/head)

    I've put LED lights in for license plate and looks awesome. So I'm wondering what everyone else uses for the others and if possible, can you give links?

    I'm not interested in HIDs as don't have the time to update.

    Cheers guys

    I've got XenonMax in my dipped beams. I'm impressed with them, as I came from HID's. I also did the headlight beam raise mod that Duncan has highlighted in the How2's

    Where did you get the XenonMax bulbs from and how much were they?

    The headlight beam raise mod.. What's that all about?

    Do you all use the 100% or the 120% brighter bulbs?

    What does everyone use for the likes of fog light and side light bulbs?

    Also I only noticed tonight when standing behind my car that after I locked it, my license plate bulbs were flashing, about 11 times on and off with a pause of a couple of seconds between each flash. Is this normal?

    These are the ones i'm using... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1304846300...84.m1439.l2649

    I have also noticed that the bulbs I have in my interior roof light are emitting a very dull light, this is also when the car is locked... again is this normal?

    Here are the ones im using... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1304645505...84.m1439.l2649

    I'm just conscious as I have had some problems with my car starting and having to jump start it as im wondering they're draining my battery mixed in with ive not used my car for 3 days. What are you're thoughts?

    Cheers

    Lew

    I use xtec bulbs for the sidelights as they're perfect white light and the bulbs aren't visible in the lamp (mtec are really visible in the lamp as they're blue) only downside is that they omit next to no light.
