    Default Please can someone idiot guide me on 'white' front light bulbs?

    Hi Guys,

    Well my last two GSI's both had xenon headlights and looked pretty dam fine. My current facelift Vectra C has normal headlights.

    Now i dont want to do a HID conversion, i just want to change the side light, full and dipped lights to a more white, brighter item!

    Please could some one tell me which bulbs to buy? and if poss where please? I hear all this stuff about H7, H6 etc whatever... i just wanna buy the right bits!

    Cheers guys!

    Mike
