Hello all!

I was wondering whether anyone has upgraded their halogen lights to a much whiter looking xenon lights?

I saw on James & Kate's video on YouTube where they mentioned they had changed their lights but not sure to what exactly. Does anyone know?

I fitted a set of Ultras, which you can find on Ebay, and Amazon on occasion. They are 60w rated (as per the cars rating) and much whiter than the OEM bulbs. I stumbled upon this brand some years back when I spent way too much money trying all the best bulbs on my Zoe to little effect.

But fitting xenon lights to a car not type approved for them should lead to it failing inspection, and bring you a fine if stopped in a control?
Atleast over here it's not legal to mount xenon bulbs in halogen headlights.

Xenon have quite a different specification than other bulbs have.

I currently have COB chip LED’s fitted. They were cheap on eBay (Novosight). As they are bi-projector headlights the cut off is very good. Penetration at night is good. Both on dipped & main beam.
