    Default Show me your headlight bulbs please!

    I've been looking at getting some replacement bulbs for the headlight with the dark nights now upon us earlier than ever!

    Would any be so kind as to give me a few pics of sidelights and main bulbs on (day and night if poss) as I've looked at some H7 Xenon filled bulbs that have a blue tint to the glass and been told they glow white.

    And any alternatives, as the one I've looked at are around £29 for a set of 2!!!

    Ring Xenonmax 100% or 120% brighter ones? I have the 100% brighter ones in the Zafira and the Vectra (main and dipped) and they are good, and last too!!

    Yes, their the ones. Others may disagree, but I found them to be pretty much the same brightness etc as the Osram Nightbreakers and the Philips X-Treme 80% ones I've tried previously.

    the 'whiter' bulbs will serve only to provide you with less light output and are a total waste of money. I ran this route a few years ago. Horses for courses and there are some on here as ijk571 have found some bulbs to be a good improvement.
    But for £50 (price of a good set of bulbs) I went for HID. Something I didn't want to do, but was by far the best money and improvement to the car.

    The standard replacement bulbs will probably burn hotter and so pop more frequently as stated in many other threads. Luck again though as I've replaced my sidelight bulbs once and they blew 1 month after fitting! There is long thread somewhere about this.
