    Be interesting to see what they look like and how blue or white they are.
    I did Run Piaa Plasma Spark Blues in the Vec but I want whiter light now for my new car (sorry to admit but ive gone old man ish and bought a Volvo S40 in the new shape, still it is the sport model so has a nice bodykit and 18's)
    Im looking at the Diamond ones (5000K and blue light in the picture on the packets) compared to the philips X-treme power which are rated at 4000K also im looking at the Piaa Xtreme white plus (again 4000K) im aware different manufacturers colour output varies even though the Kelvin temp may be the same so any advice appreciated (and pics)

    Cheers Ste

    Yeah I saw you were selling the nice pair of PIAA`s....I guess that at 7000 Kelvin they`ll have a blue tint on them, which I might guess is what you didn`t like. The Philips blue visions that I have installed now they are rated at 4000 K. and have still yellowish tint which I dont like....let`s hope we find a white winner with these 5000 k. puppys

    Default Happy but not!

    Well I`ve been delaying this write up only because I was not so shure of the outcome.
    They DiamondVisons are quite good and they are as white as probably you can get on and H7. Compared to the BlueVision`s they are on another league color wise. Diamonds do deliver white light. If they improve the driving conditions at night well that I dont know for shure. They seem to have a longer range of light, but again I`m not shure about this, considering the fact that the street lights are amber color and your car is the only source of white light....as a matter of fact actually having whiter lights bolds the fact that VEC`s have a poor head light dessing IMO. Wraping it up, I`m happy with the white beam delivered.
    On the PIASS wedge bulbs well NOT happy at all....they were supposed to be on the 5000K range which is defo not!...they deliver some kind of redish/pinkish glow around the white light...kind of strange....but not a white source as they advertise....which is odd being a PIAA bulb supposed to be the top of the line on the matter.

    DiamondVision left / BlueVision right

    BlueVision left / Piaa right

    Bluevisions on

    Diamond / Piaa on

    Dusk / Night shots

    I've just finished putting my new MTECs in minus skin from my left hand, I might do a comparison from the Osram silverstars in a bit when it gets dark which means scraping more skin off lol, (couldn't be bothered removing filter box lol!)

    i had some xenons in my old pug, which i sold to my dad. he took it for mot the other day and they said that the side lights were illegal. there were blue ones like in the pics above. anyone know the laws when it comes to lights? i think they had a bit of a moan about the main beams too..
