    H7/ Sidelight bulb question.

    Hi Guys,

    Firstly sorry to dig up an old thread but im a newbie im trying to find out what bulbs I can use
    for dipped beam (h7) and sidelights which will give a white / xenon look without
    causing errors.

    I found this thread below but im not sure the philips bulbs will be bright enough.
    bulbs

    Does anyone have pics of the bulbs (h7's / 501's) they are using when on?

    Or should i be ok to use these ones?

    Piaa H263 for sides and H361 for dipped.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks
    Kenny

    the h7 bulbs should be ok depends on how white you want them there are so many different bulbs out there saying the are close to hid bulbs but not many actually are but piaa are a very good make so should be a nice white light as for the sidelight leds they will give you a error msg on your d.i.s unless you put a resistor in there to not sure which one tho there should be a tread on here somewhere about led sidelights

    I replaced my standard H7s with Ring +100's and they give a much more intense white light. Dipped and Main beam cost 39.98 which I didn't think was too bad. I couldn't see how to changethe sidelight bulbs because they really look yellow - any tips?

    i think they are under the main beam in the same units look in the headlight and u'll see the sidelight bulb under the main beam they are a pain in the arse to get out tho you need small hands

    If small hands are required I've got no chance!
