  • Xenon Replacement Question...

    First of all, yes i have searched but couldn't find an answer

    I have sent back my aftermarket HID's as they kept flickering, and they'll be just another excuse to be pulled come december... I would like a good bulb that look like xenons.

    I realise i wont ever get the exact same results from just a bulb.

    I searched on here for a replacement and found a brand being mentioned a lot was called MTec.

    Searched for them and now on a website for a company called HIDs-Direct, they have two types by them...
    1) Cosmos Blue
    2) Super White

    Im trying to replicate the 6000K Xenon look so which one would be advisable to go for?

    Thanks

                Do you have hulk hands? Lol never happened to me. I lowered the bumper and had all my bulbs including fogs done in about 45 mins. Not bad for my first attempt.

                    Have a look at toms user guide mate.
                    You want H7 dipped, H1 Full beam and H11 fogs. All 55w any higher and its illegal as they're too bright. To be honest you don't need them any brighter, I never use full beam anymore. I got them all off HIDS Direct mate. K would like them buy I'm on my phone. Let me know if you struggle finding them and I'll stop being lazy

                        I am such a good citizen a deserve a super star sticker

                        Heres the link mate http://www.hids-direct.co.uk/mtec-xe...lbs-p-393.html

                        Just select which ones you want:-
                        H7- dipped
                        H1- full beam
                        H11- fog lights.

                        Some people have the cosmo blue which have more of a blue tinge to but I wanted White.

                        They come with a 1 year warranty but should last longer mate.

                            Not at all mate. Just order the ones you want. I only did all mine as im a bit of a perfectionist. I mean how often do you use your fog lights or full beam?
