    Default Another small lighting upgrade

    Just placed an order for a pair of 5000K 55W bulbs to replace my 4300K H7's in the Vectra after passing the MOT without issue, and, I also ordered a pair of 503H 10W halogens for my front sidelights to boost them up a bit as the ones used in BMW halo's and Alfa 159's they are noticeably brighter than the 501's

    Will be very keen see how the 5000K look when I get them

    10W won't make enough of a difference to be illegal and besides the HID kit is not exactly MOT approved

    And yes mate the kit is a 55W one with the 4300K's at the moment.
