    So i've put Lamin-x's subtle tint on my headights and to be honest I have noticed quite an affect on the light output, not only less light but also sort of streaks and stuff on the peripherals.

    I've sent t8ups a message as from doing forum searches he seems to be the guy to get on to and having read about philips/osram bulbs i'm hoping to get an upgrade of all the bulbs up front to boost output without going HID.

    I was looking up Ebay and was wondering if any of you have tried out these cheap a$$ kits? I'm looking for a good bright white output with as little blue tinge as possible, I've read you want 5000K for this?

    with 100W you risk burning the wires

    the lights are **** already without putting laminx on there, don't see why you'd want to reduce it anymore tbh but still

    Cool Mindak yea i've only heard good things about them. Did you change your other bulbs at the front to try match their color? I was hoping to hear from someone who has used the cheap ebay ones, I might get them just to see...although if 100w risks burning wires then maybe not..

    Very easy, remove the fog surround by pulling it off, then remove the 3 screws and it comes out, unplug it, swap the bulbs over and fit in reverse.
