    Contact T8ups from E M tuning in the traders section.

    Good price and his bulbs all look great with no dash errors. I'm not sure the specs on the bulbs I got from him but they look great and now headlights, fogs and side lights all match, nice and crisp white.

    It's a never ending saga Tiffy, I got Osrams, brilliant over standard, then put in led sides, that made osrams look less white, and just added Ice white fogs , which are awesome but now need to change heads and sides grrrrr

    No, Tiffy, 'fraid they're not white, but they are very good at letting you see where you're going.

    I have the standard xenons and the dip beam is good but the main beam is very watery and ill defined , I have the osram nightbrakers in my motorbike ( Aprilia rsvr ) and they are fantastic just as good as xenon in B7 a4 on dip but actually better on Main beam when 4 bulbs are illuminated !

    Are they halogen bulbs or LEDs? Only asking as I have Phillips Blue Vision bulbs which are halogen and look almost as white as they do.

    i have osram H11 night breakers + in my drl's although they supply a good light on high and low beam the colour just doesn't match everything else. As i can only fit H9 or H11 bulbs my choice is limited Ive tried Ultra also some supposedly white bulbs off Ebay but short of going down the HID route a match seems out the picture

    I've got an SE, and can't figure out how to access the fog light bulbs to change them. Anyone know how to do this on cars with SE bumpers?

    . I think you can do it by jacking car up and getting access from behind that way. Not as easy as SLine! Let me know how you get on if done by weekend as I need to do mine too.
