    Default Best brightest bulbs?

    Try saying that 3 times quickly

    The o/h reckons the headlights are a bit poor, in my old Coupe I used Philips Vision plus, but wondered whether peeps on here had tried other varieties that they thought were bright?

    I don't have xenons or afl.

    Does the length of the beam improve?

    Can you get these bulbs with a slight blue tint to them, same as a lot of the Mercs have?

    I have Philips Blue Vision and to be honest when I fitted them I wasn't overly impressed ... they do have a slight blue tint and did seem a bit better but the headlight design on the car means you can't signifiantly extend the dipped beam reach with any bulb it seems.

    One of the bulbs went on me the other day (http://forum.vectra-c.com/showthread.php?t=18566) and I replaced it with one of the OEM Philips bulbs I had taken out. I have to say in the fog driving home last night it was clear that the Blue visions do give stronger, whiter (slightly blue tinted) light with further reach than the OEM's ... the OEM bulb gave a shorter yellower light. So I will definately be spending on another set of bulbs if Red Griffin turn me down for any sort of warranty

    Definately is for the Facelift Vectra so Signum should be the same

    Edit: Sides are W5W & Main Beam is H1

    I've read all the 'bulb' threads on here, seems that Osram Silverstar or Philips GT150 are ones to go for, but on Duncans pics the Silverstar didn't look to be any different to the OEM bulbs.

    aargh!
