    H7 LED Low Beam/High Beam Bulbs OR Philips Diamond Vision

    Which ones would you pick? I need a new set of bulbs and am tired of the yellowness of the halogens

    Phillips Crystal Vision for me, standard H7 halogen

    Nice white light, perfect! Might be wrong but are the LED's not illegal for main/dipped beam? There is another thread on this subject:-

    Nightbreaker Plus or Philips Diamond Vision Bulbs!

    Correct ! Led replacement headlight bulbs are illegal for road use in the UK. In any case without properly designed projector headlights led's wouldn't work as the light output is insufficient.

    I have the Diamond Vision bulbs as fogs. against my Xenons they still look slightly off colour but way whiter than the OEM bulbs. So I guess it'll be the same for headlight bulbs. Unless you have the R8 with full LED technology you won't get the light beam cast ahead of you nor stay on the right side of the law.

    Ultra Power Bulbs (H7/499) Pair - Ultra - Performance Car Parts / Car Accessories / Car Tuning / Car Styling / Essex - Rude Racing

    what about these? I saw on another forum that they were the "most xenon like" they had tried.

    ^^^ they'll likely be crap IMO, the blue filter reduces light output too.


    I bought some OSRAM nightbreakers off ebay for under £15 off ebay; they are definitely whiter than normal and seem pretty bright, they do impress every time I turn the lights on for halogen lights anyway.. They do have a very small filter on the bulb but with a gap around the filament.
