    Default Yellow looking Sidelights

    Hi Guys

    Don't know about you but my sidelights look pretty rubbish next to all the other bulbs up front (when on that is). Can anyone recommend a W5W replacement bulb that doesn't suffer with this yellow look.

    Cheers!

    Hi, PIAA do some really bright ones, although a bit pricey. i have tried the phillips blue vision ones but they seem to loose the colour and go burnt looking after a short while.
    Best results i have seen are the LED type but you have to wire in a resistor or the fault light will come up on your dash!

    I've got the PIAA Extreme white side lights in Mine along with PIAA Plasma Blue Headlight lamps..... The H7 Lamps are quite pricey, but the side light bulbs aren't too bad on E-bay

    Not many have looked at this thread since piccies added. Would have though most would upgrade their lights and want to see results.

    With the performance of the PIAA side lights I am tempted to upgrade the dipped to PIAA as well but @ £40 odd for a set of H7's it might have to wait!!
