hello
first off apologies for not searching, I'm at work and on my phone
my dipped bulb passenger side went last night
what size bulb do I need?
also would it be worth getting Phillips supervision or decent bulbs? what would you recommend?
thanks

They won't be H4 if it's a 56 plate FR :( , they will be H7 bulbs as the FR has twin headlamp units. ;)

The pre-facelift 1.2 and 1.4 are the only versions that have the single headlamp units - using H4 bulbs. :)

I had Osram Night Breakers in mine before upgrading to HID's >> Clicky <<

Yes H7 Philips Extremes are okay - see www.powerbulbs.co.uk or .com - or as said their eshop on ebay if that is cheaper.

Thanks for the help =]

I think I'm gunna get the nightbreakers, says they are the answer to philips x-treme bulbs but cheaper

I think I'm gunna replace all the bulbs since slightly blue dipped and yellow main will look silly lol
Do I need H3 and H7 bulbs?
I found powerbulbs on eBay and they're like £10 a pair for both of these, with free W5W sidelights =]

For money vs performance, you can`t beat nightbreakers. I have them in my mains with hid dip.
They are no different in colour compared to standard bulbs really, osram say they give 10% whiter light but they are still 4300k halogens so still look yellow.
I think they had to put the blue covering at the end to keep the light output within legal limits and to focus it better.

Oh, and yes it is H3 for main beam, Trust me :)
