    Default I Just Dont Get It....

    Ive been wanting to get a Xenon look with my headlights for a while now, after much research i decided to go with MTEC 501 sidelights and Osram Nightbreaker main lights.

    The MTECs look a treat but the Nightbreakers still gave a yellow looking headlight.

    So yesterday i bought some Halfords Laser Blue headlights which say give off a white/blue look, BUT still im only getting a yellow looking headlight???

    Im very confused now and just dont know what to do, i cant really afford HIDs however much id like to be able to!

    Help please

    hi m8
    all halogen bulps will give the yellow light as they rely on the element heating up through bad conduction.
    but HIDs work on the arc light (same as a welder) so will give you the closer daylight look.

    Sounds like you need these ones then http://www.hids-direct.co.uk/mtec-xe...lbs-p-395.html.

    Have a look at this thread for pics http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showthread.php?t=67920.

    All I'll say is that they are very white but you won't see as much of the road at night as you do with NB's.
