There was a group buy over on MIG, but it was hampered by certain sellers trying it on with the price and products offered.

There are some sellers on eBay, but mostly overseas, so becaureful not to get stung with import tax, which you will. I pulled out of the group buy. The prices are slowly coming down, and there are actually sellers in the UK on eBay selling them now. Do a seach on MIG for them, theres some good photos showing how good they really are.!

Have found the replacement branded blue xeon and high output zeon Halford's bulbs to be excellent - the high output ones I'd definately reccommend. Diffenerce is well worth it. Suggested them to a mate with an Octavia (which already has xeons) and was well impressed with them.

Yep, standard fitting bulbs and even work with the self leveling system.

I don't really see myself replacing them as they are very white with a slight blue green tinge so don't attract plod but look modern. Probably added 50% to the distance I can see on standard beam. Main beam is insanely bright!

Good thing too is that if one blows, straight down Halford's to pick up another.

Right, off down the chippy. Hunger calls.

I think brighter bulbs work...i had Halfords 30% in Cav's and had them in my Cally...now got Osram Silverstars in now at 50% brighter...better bulbs work better in some cars than others, depending largely on the design of the reflector unit.

your pushing the standard wiring to its limit with those bulbs, certainly wouldnt reccomend running 100watt bulbs unless you have re-fed the lights using heavier cable.

Ive now been running 90/120's for about 6 months now. Hasnt had any adverse effect on the wiring and makes a BIG difference...Doesnt cost much either..:Cool2:

The cheap bulbs off ebay are s**t Get some Halfords 50% brighter bulbs they are really good. I brought two lots off bulbs off ebay and both were poorer than standard.
