    I used to run the nightbreakers in my 8p there very good bulbs, osram is oem for most german cars so are pretty good quality. there not white/blue but thats not what you want in main beam and fogs anyway.

    Are your d2s bulbs going yellow? Gas discharge bulb get more white/blue with age because they gain kelvins so burn hotter. 6000k don't work as well on the road as 4300k or 5000k.
    I've just changed mine to Philips D2S 85122 4150K, work really well on the road, they also do a D2S 85122+ which is 4300k these will be more whiter, bit dear though!

    Ahhh i see I got mine from eurocarparts, i was surprised how well these philips work, put my main beam and fogs to shame.

    Is it possible to convert the main beam to xenon or would it not work?

    as xenons ignite then take a couple of seconds to reach full brightness they would be no good for main beam Imho

    I'd recommend getting 5000k's, you can buy a pair of unbranded D2S's on eBay for around 30. They give a nice clear white light without sacrificing usability or light output.

    In the car, and up close the bulbs will always look white with a hint of yellow, but get one of your mates to drive your car a couple of hundred metres away and you'll be surprised at how different they look. I had 5000k's fitted in my A4, which were white with plenty of blue/purple at the cutoff, but I sold my car to a mate and he's put 6000k's in there which just look tacky, especially from far away

    My advice, therefore, is to get 5000k unbranded bulbs. I had them for 2 years in the A4, 1 year in my R32, and 14 months in the S3 with no problem at all.

    would be good sandip! In my old golf mk4 I used to use mtec super white bulbs, there Japanese they wasn't the brightest bulbs but the were very white/blue! (I used to be one of those wolly's who drives with fogs on all the time, would never do it now!) you dont want fog's to be realy bright as they wont do there job properly
