    Evening boys and girls.

    Right im looking at buying some new bulbs. Ive been doing some research as i think the standard H7 bulbs (main beam and fogs) look gash and id like a nice clean crisp light. Been on SCN and seen a few threads about the xenonshop.co.uk, they do a H7 xenon match bulb and they are supposed to be very good quality and also look very good too:

    http://www.xenonshop.co.uk/vb_product.php

    Also my main beams have started going yellow so been looking at getting their own D2S bulbs, dont do 5000k so think im going to get 6000k:

    http://www.xenonshop.co.uk/vb_product.php

    Right to the point, im going to be buying these no matter what but they offer a group buy discount of between 10-50% but i dont want to push for a group buy if no one's interested, so is anyone interested?

    Right been in touch with the guy at xenon shop, he says the D2S bulbs they supply should be fine to use on our cars but hes going to do some research and see about getting phillip bulbs (xenon of course) just for peace of mind because i know one or 2 people have had trouble with aftermarket xenons, and hes going to give me a price for them so we can take our pick.

    I might be interested, just changed my drivers side side light and my dipped beam is now pointing to the ground but the motors are still working, going to see about getting it booked in at the TTS to have it looked at, might get them to change the bulbs at the same time, would want the D2S and H7 xenon matchs for the main beam.

    Im assuming H7 bulbs are 2 x sidelights and 2 x full beam? Im up for a pair of each.

    As for the Xenons, I dont think mine need replacing and Im happy with them but I'll go for a pair of 6000ks.

    Whats the full cost without discount?

    Right update.

    Getting 20% discount no matter how many people are in on the buy or not on the H7 bulbs, they also do xenon match sidelights that are dash board friendly, so thats goods.

    Now the bad news, the D2S bulbs they offer arnt guarnted to work on our car, he says hes had someone with a 2001 s3 phone and says hes having trouble with them so its upto you guys if you risk buying them or not.
