    Default At last white 501's

    Did the 5000k hid thing a few months back,then wanted white 501's,tried led's strobing did my pig in,then various so called xenon effect 501 bulbs all seemed too yellow,so was stuck with mtec's which give very little light output but at least its white,then my s/son turns up with white sides in his little punto,so i bought some and they are the nearest to white i have found virtually no different in colour to the mtec but with a decent output and for £2 very good value

    I've now ordered some for my mains as i've seen them in his and they are white as well,thought they would be rubbish for the money but they are suprisingly good

    They are normal bulbs mate so no he wont need any extras and no errors on the dash.

    Cheers, I had noticed it in the small print and wasn't sure. I've ordered some now too, I think you've just made that company/guy some money

    Be interesting to see how they perform mate, they could be the holy grail of canbus sidelights I've spent enough on various error free and canbus friendly bulbs, just to have them prodcuing errors and throwing messages up everywhere. Frustrated isn't the word!!
