i am looking to make all of my bulbs whiter





for the DRL would LEDs or MTEC T20s be better?


Also, for the headlights i have been looking at the phillips bulbs and have found x-treme vision, blue vision ultra and diamond vision 5000k does anoyone have any experience with these bulbs?



Thanks

Came today
Right = original, left = new white imitation hid.
Love the look. Makes them more like the LED lights out on the roads...

I like the white light, but not keen of the blue look when they are off, as it doesn't go with red. Lol

They look nice! I think I'll invest in some, seen as the normal DRL's are too yellow. I think I'll also get some Phillips Night Breakers, while I'm at it!

These are the ones I purchased from ebay


Note : someone mentioned that the box says single filament. The bulbs in the box were dual.

Really nice! I think that I will go for them too!
DRL whiter is better.
Anyway I hope that the blue bulb is not so evident in daylight

Don't really understand what's going on there. The bulb you are showing in the pic is a single filament 21w

The DRL is a dual filament 21w for DRL & 5w for the sidelight. Can't see how the ones in the pic will work.

If it's a bulb you're after, then the best is the Mirror White PIAA from here:
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/PIAA-H-366-MIRROR-WHITE-580-WY21-5W-TWIN-FILAMENT-/120865467718?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item1c2424ad46
These are whiter than the MTEC's

If you want LED's then canbus versions are available from HIDS Direct.

Not sure that's correct. I've had problems with non canbus LEDs

I think he means normal halogen bulbs as opposed to expensive canbus LED bulbs.

The PIAA bulbs are not legal in the UK and are not E marked. The MTEC's are the correct ones for the UP! and work perfectly. The are double filament T20/7443 21w/5w bulbs.

Thats odd. The delivered ones were dual filament. but the box only said 21W, as shown in the picture..
