i am a noob with these things want diffrent bulbs or light that are white any ideas ?
I went for these:
Straight swap and it's buy 1 get 1 free. Brilliant bulbs & isn't too white (blinding) unlike some of those on the roads!
You can get decent branded ones for that price.
have a look herehttp://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/search.php?mode=search&page=1
And iirc, you can get discount from being a member here.
Phillips X-treme Power. I've got some and can honestly say I can't see any hint of yellow in them at all.
Buy them from Powerbulbs and get some 'upgraded' Phillips side lights thrown in for free too. CLICK HERE
Apply the following code at checkout and get a further 10% off the price. Code is AYSCX1729
All in all it works out to about £25 delivered for the lot :icon_thumright:
I was thinking of getting some of these - http://www.autobulbsdirect.co.uk/H7-Ring-Xenon-Max-100-12v-55w-NEW-pair.html
I'm with aythreee on this, Philips X-Treme are brilliant quality, if you don't fancy these then the closest to it are the Osram Nightbreakers
Another vote from me. I've used Osram Nightbreakers, Halfords Super Brilliance and GE +60% and replaced them with Phillips X-treme vision H7s. The rest all still work but are on a shelf in the garage....
I don't think you can do better for brightness for an "ordinary" bulb and they are very white.
Put the H4 versions in my other two cars too...
Cheapest i've found so far - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/AUDI-A3-ALL-P...arts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM?hash=item58857d5737
Just ordered myself a set
Just had a thought - should i change the main beam bulbs as well as the dipped?
Would these work in a 59 plate?? Due to the blown bulb warning on the DIS??
Is there any on this website for the DRL/sidelights??
They would look good in the main beams, as the tips are chromed - but I use some old PIAA bulbs in my main beams. Because I don't use my main beams very much, I tend to use up in my main beams, whatever bulbs I've just relegated from my dipped headlights...
In response to Cruiser89, they are standard watage bulbs and will the bulb warning system will work just fine.
There is a thread about white light bulbs for the DRLs - do a seach and you'll find it.
You also want silver indicator bulbs too - again, there's a recent thread for that too....
This is really helpful since I was going to be changing my fogs since i have HIDs on my upcoming BE. You can't have white HIDs and yellow fogs now can you? :icon_thumright:
Only thing is, does anyone know the bulb type for the fogs on a 10 plate BE (since I don't get me hands on it for another couple weeks)?
Well in actual fact, assuming that you're a "good boy" and only use your fogs when visibility is less tham 100m (the legal requirement), then a yellowish bulb is actually better for those poor visibility conditions - and no one else is going to care what colour they are in those conditions...
True... But what about if I have them on for show (not while driving, of course)?
