    Default Main Beam - Bulb to suit HID upgrade ???

    Having recently fitted HID's and MTEC sidelights...looking very white

    The main beam light still comes on as a yellow light. Not often used I agree but what bulbs could be used to give a whiter colour to these lights

    Thanks in advance

    As the dip beam and main beam are the same type of bulbs, could you not use another set of HIDs for the main beam?

    Not advisable to use HID's on main beam. As they are gas discharge they don't like being turned on and off repeatedly in a short period of time.

    Most cars with Bi-xenon use a electrical shutter and leave the bulbs on.
