    An improvement yes...but still not that great!

    For the sidelights, you can fit a set of LED sidelight 'bulbs'...PIAA make a nice set with 2 white LEDs. You can get cheaper versions too.
    These are pure white and look good next to the HID dip beam.

    For the main beam, there's nothing I've found that looks even close.
    I've tried the Philips Bluevision and their others too...they are all still too yellow.
    I've even tried 135w PIAA Extreme White's at 25.00 a pop...still too yellow.

    Both are less yellow than stock, but nothing even close to the pure white of the HIDs.

    i know what you mean.

    i work with HID/xenons daily. To retro DIY fit them, is too much hassle, and cost, and also may not be legal.
