My headlights look very yellow and I think they need replacing.

Are there any suggestions? I previously found a post about replacement headlight bulbs with some recommendations but I can't find it again.

They are the halogens? H7. You can just get the osram nightbreaker or Philips Extreme vision for 20quid a pair.

I presumed they are halogen based on colour and lack of light on the bulb. I didn't know they are HID.

They should be h7. You got a massive choice in bulbs for everyone's budget but generally if you buy cheap you buy twice. I personally wouldn't put cheap unbranded bulbs in the front of my car they can do damage but it's up to you what you pick.

I found Philip extreme vision to not be great.
I found osram night breakers blow in no time.

Hmmmm

I don't think you need worry that Ultra bulbs are like some cheap, unbranded Chinese ones. I read about these Ultra bulbs a few years back in a car magazine where it was reported they were as "xenon arctic white" as you can get whilst still being UK legal. Euro Car Parts stock them nowadays. They do not look like silly, blue Christmas tree lights :glee:. I've had them in my car (main dipped beam) for over two years and they've been fine. I would add that they do not seem to light up the road any better than normal, standard bulbs but they are a decent match to my cree LED DRL/sidelight bulbs. I've kept normal bulbs in my main beam and fog lights which do look slightly more yellow. I expect there are aftermarket whole light unit solutions but I wanted to keep my solution inexpensive and simple.
