    Default Better bulbs

    Hiya guys. Just a quick one. I'm sorry if this has been. Overwriting a million times before. Everybody says the headlights on the vec c's are rubbish and as I have agree I've never know on what to do about it. Never took much notice of the hids threads as I don't know much about them. I'm just wondering is there a good set of headlight bulbs I can get or would fitting better brighter (if there is such a thing) I've seen some on lmf website, think their Phillips x treme. Just after an easy solution I guess if there is one. Thanks all

    Start by adjusting the height of the headlight beam it makes a world of difference.

    I have tried that tbh. Maybe I should just upgrade them but like I say I don't know much about hids etc. I should look into it. Just thought better bulbs might improve things but not have the expense of upgrading the headlights

    As above, check/raise your beam height first. To change bulbs take the airbox off completely, and unclip and twist out the washer fluid fill tube. That should give you enough space.
    If not it's drop bumper, which isn't as bad as it sounds.
    HiD's are good, but not fully road legal, so if you want to fit better bulbs, go for xenon gas 50% + or better. I'm using Halfrauds, others have found Ring or Nightbreakers good.
    Either way it needs doing.
