    Default New Bulbs

    Got some Philips Xtreme H7s for Xmas, whacked them in the other day and straight away noticed how yellow and mis-matched the sidelight bulbs were, so after a quick shufty on here for recommendations, Philips Bluevision 501s were ordered from eBay.
    Spent 5 minutes today fitting the N/S and almost an hour fitting the O/S!!! But very happy with the results, well worth £6.

    Sorry for carp camera phone pics.

    Sorry I couldn't resist! It is so much easier just to spend 5 mins taking the airbox out. Changed mine today too for mtec.

    Fair game mate.
    I took the top off the airbox and the inlet air pipe and all that outta the way but still struggled, hands are too big I think. Still got there in the end, only a few grazes!
    I thought about the Mtec ones but from what I read, they match the HID kits better than halogen bulbs. How do you find them?
    The Bluevision bulbs themselves are blue but when lit are a crisp white light.

    The MTEC bulbs sound the same, blue with a crisp white light, 100 better than standard, look really good. Sounds like you've got sausage fingers!!!

    Cheers Glen, I think it was one of your threads I read that recommended them.

    No offence taken here Robbie, same as Big Rich, my mates are always ribbing me about my sausage fingers!
    Unfortunatley my usual limited dexterity was reduced further by below freezing temps. I'm afraid I momentarily contemplated the £30+VAT a dealer would charge to fit them...
