    Can someone reccomend some decent bulbs for non xenon lights.

    I bought some Phillips Blue Vision and they seem really dim.

      phillips blue vision are pants mate i had them in my focus....

      i upgraded them to halfords extreme brilliance bulbs....

      they sound **** but believe me they are really good bulbs, bright as anything and they have a nice blue tinge in them!!

      think they are about 19.99 a piece though

                    was moaning to myself about my lights this week. Stopped in a layby, then after a few carefully aimed spits and a rub with tissue I was a happy bunny again. Don't forget that the salt on the roads will make then lenses get a black sheen on them very quickly at the moment

                        log on to Auto Express they are always testing bulbs for output/quality and price.
                        I had some 50% brighter H7 's and bought a set of 80 then 90% brighters no difference.

                        Auto Express found the same similar outputs.
