    Default Indulge me in my laziness (bulbs/wipers)

    Evening!

    I need new bulbs at the front, all over, preferably something non yellow, im too poor for HID's at the moment - had a look on the bay but theres tons of different types, not sure what are best, cheap as possible! Whats out there thats best on a budget?

    Also, wiper blades, front, any good deals to be found on the net?

    Thankyou-please!

    Halfords brilliance ones (the ones that are normally buy one get one free) are ok buti'd save for an HID kit. Anything else is a waste of time really

    Was that for the ebay link? if so yes, they are going to be coated at that price... some people have said in past threads these type flake or blow, but i've had lots of these sets and only bulbs to ever flake have been standard indicator bulbs, and had a set of these in the astra for good 2 year...

    And yes, there just as dull as standard. i'd say bright but thats not a word i'd use to describe the vectra's lights
