    afraid there is nothing that looks remotely like real xenon lighting.

    philips blue vision are a reasonable compramise.

    tinted blue, but shine whiter than conventional ones.

    Re: What headlight bulbs??

    I bought my main beam bulbs from:

    www.powerbulbs.co.uk

    I bought Phillips bulbs which have a slight blue colour in the light.

    If you order give them a ring to confirm which type will fit your car,a stheir on-line checker is not up to date. The best way to check is to remove one bulb and compare the fitting with their web site.

    Re: What headlight bulbs??

    I am using PIAA xtreme white plus bulbs for mainbeam. They are whiter than standard but not massively so. There are more bulbs in the range that go whiter/bluer.
    Will try and take some decent photos of them. Attempted to last night but they were a bit useless. Did get some of my sidelights though .....

    Re: What headlight bulbs??

    Got my bulbs through mail order. PIAA's website has a list of all the bulbs, prices, and where to get them from.

    The sidelights were about 17 per pair of white-white (white-white because there are 2 leds per side and they also come in red, white, and blue combinations)

    PIAA Bulbs

    As for the red lights - mobile dark room, pimp mobile, or just flicking them on to watch people infront quickly move over - take your pick.

    I'll take piccies of them properly tonight along with the mainbeam which aren't as blue as Catfish's seem to be.
