H7R but these are now 100% illegal so no point in doing it. I got away with using them for two years, but failed MOT after they got stricter on the law last April.

Forget HID’s in standard headlights.

Or do what I did, get hids ( h7r) at 35w and most importantly at a colour temp of 4300k ( when they are warmed up they look like normal bulbs

@crash mat

Better visibility on the roads! And when they first turn on they are quite blue for a few seconds as they warm up, that blue-ness makes me smile :)

You need a kick in the pant's those who just use H7, at least go for H7r and don't dazzle other road users.

H7 in standard reflector headlight is irresponsible.
