I also wish to know if anyone has had any sucess. Same goes for the h7 dipped and h11 fogs. Lookin for bulbs without resistors/ballasts ideally and no errors. I've updated be OEM halogens in the meantime but it doesn't quite cut it next to the DRLs, and it's really starting to bug me!

....Might just have to bite the bullet and use resistors or hid kit

Install a 5000k Hids kit and the colour is a perfect match..the light output is great and looks as good as any of the premium cars out there.

I was debating just buying the Phillips racing vision +130 or osram night breaker lasers, they are both the newest and best on the market halogen bulbs since we don't have washers or auto level on the non matrix lights I don't really fancy getting pulled if a cop gets too near.
I've watched reviews on the LED bulbs and they just don't seem to throw light quite as far as halogens, xenon is still the top option from what I've seen until laser becomes more available.

These are the bulbs I've got in. They throw a nice pure white out and there only cheap. I made the mistake of buying some dear osram bulbs at £20 a pop. They just turned out looking yellow but were advertised as pure white. Stick with these off eBay, they look nice.

I used the stealth kit from Hids4u with no issues but someone else tried the same kit and had issues so they bought a premium kit from Xenons online. Looking at the Xenons online kit you get a better warranty, 3years compared to the 2 years on hids4u.
The only other option if you want the bulbs to be a perfect match would be the Phillips diamond vision..these should be a perfect match and cost around £23 from eBay/amazon

I have already got something similar to these fitted which give a nice white light but looking for something a little brighter to match the Hids :D
