    Default Headlights

    Now ladies and gentlemen I have admitted to being a bit Naive before so please don't shout at me.
    However been reading lots of posts very useful information etc. and decided to go the Osram silver star route to headlights.

    I purchase a pair of said items from e-bay £14 arrived next morning (Saturday) today even, so very impressed, however I go to change dipped lights only to find the main beams are exactly the same H7 lamp.
    I know I should have checked before.
    So the question should I have ordered two pairs of these and changed the lot? O just forget about the mains?

    Mr.B

    Its not too much bother as you use the dipped beam all the time. the main beam will still be brighter but i would of changed it, i have just ordered a full set (2 x main beam, 2x dipped, 2 x fog, 2 x sides) as one of my fog lamps has gone.

    Darn it when I ordered there were no free 501's but the price was the same. Hey ho. I have to say they are a great improvement over the old bulbs though, it is nice to be able to see at night.
