As long as they "look" white when they are on your OK happy

If you want brighter, then you need 100W jobbies (They appear to be std 55W) or a proper HID kit for the ultimate in lighting.

They should look nice and funky though Vics smile

PIAA are the best ones to get by a mile! There about 60 but look really genuine! There the only ones I would recommend!

By law your, and for the MOT, headlights are ment the throw out a "white" light, not blue, green, red etc, also, your not supposed to have any that are more than 55/60W

Get them if u want vixk,These just appear as super white light, these WILL NOT flip purple at certain angles like Xenon headlights on new cars do! They just use the xenon gas but in a standard bulb with a standard power supply, They create a more bright and more white light yet they are still 55W. U can get loads of these sorts of things. I have RING Ultra xenon lights in my front cluster, these are 60% brighter pure white lights that are only 60W,meaning they are legal. U can get bright halongen lights but they are 100Watts and ILLEGAL. Hope this helps. If u want the purple/green tinge get a special filter inside ur headlight cluster, i have an idea for that if u wanna know

theyre not "so white theyre purple"

They are not just bulbs, they are a glass bowl in a holder and the bulb goes in there, they have special Power supply units as they run on thousands of watts.

Put it this way...........On most new cars these days xenon upgrade is a 700 option on the spec list

You can buy a Proper HID Conversion off E-Bay for less that 200 smile

They use less power (Circa 35W) and have no fillament so last the life of the car.

Did you send them back???

The link above offers a 6 month warrenty, and Im sure other sellers will offer similar due to the life expectancy of the system.

They look like a load of bollocks to me, they ARE NOT the xenon lights that me and ad are on about, proper xenon lights cost a mint and look like those on the new cars. Those there are ****e, even the site says they last 2 years average!! not 4eva. Nothing lasts forever and never will

Ive got some Halfords bulbs in mine and they look great. Close up theyre white, but from a distance they have a very slight tint to them. Theyre a lot brighter than normal ones......the only drawback is theyre a pain in the ass to fit! I cant remember the name, but theyre fully road legal ones.
