    Hi,

    I have a 2004 8P A3 with the split grill. I am looking for some new bulbs that will hopefully look whiter.

    I have looked at Halfords Ultra Brilliance but I am not sure that those bulbs actually make a noticeable difference.

    I would have liked to do a Xenon Conversion but I am not quite sure what that entails so I feel it would be easier to find whiter bulbs and plug them in.

    Regards,
    Areeb

    most people rate the osram nightbreakers but i had the osram nightbreakers and they lit up road well but looking at them from outside and a distance they still look yellow

    You cannot beat a Bi-Xenon adaptive, lighting up a dark lane at night ;)

    Philips diamond vision will give a xenon effect, there's a trade off in performance to give the blue tint which is why I settled with nightbreakers

    TBH its damn sight cheaper than xenon upgrade, but nowhere near as good imho, but horses for courses, if you would like them retrofitted give me a shout :)

    I have just bought a set of the Diamond Vision bulbs so we will see how they turn out.

    I might end up doing a proper Xenon upgrade.

    Thanks
