I wanna try and enchance the look of my car, and I think a Nice set of Xenon Bulbs will help. Nice crisp White light, compared to the ugly dirty Yellow normal Halogen ones produce.

Anyone any Ideas on sizes (universal etc), or which product to buy. I dont want the chav lights you see, with blue, green or red...just a normal White xenon you get on newer cars

Are HID kits legal though? Ive heard people say they dont always get through an MOT??

Possibly internet "fear stories" though?

I did look at HID kits tbh.

Only prob I have, is being a student, and not having my job back yet frown

Halfords is a Joke though, no-one knew anything as they were all 16 year old part time people, and the "Self Help Books" seem to ignore the fact that Micras are cars.

18.99 for a single bulb tho !!!

Xenons made no difference whatsoever to mine.

Get a HID kit, well worth it.

Xenons made quite a lot of difference in my car.

Its just the cost of the bulbs. Like you said craig 18.99 for one bulb


I got my set as a kit off ebay for about 20.00, which included Sidelights, Headlights, Main beam, and fog lights.

8 bulbs for 20.00

But you have to look hard for these kits
