    Just received these 2 sets of bulbs today from America. I have been after some blue tint effect bulbs for ages and saw these. They are 8500k h.i.d (12v 65w ) and (12v 55w)so the wattage is the same as the standard bulb so no wire burning. They are gas filled so hopefully they will look good. Will update after fitting in case anyone interested ;)

    Not really, just sent shantybeater a proposal for adding some to his headlights he has on e-bay. Dont think he knows its me yet. :-^
    I have considered the projector lights but when i have a look at my headlights i quite like the look of them, hence the blue bulbs, ;)

    Euro Dezigns blue bulbs

    I don't know that you can as the chrome rings in them are about the same place as the angel eyes would go, unless they can come off :)

    Re: Euro Dezigns blue bulbs

    Update on the bulbs. Not as blue as i was expecting but the light is a more gassy look and a tinge of blue , probably nicer than the ordinary bulbs, :camera

    "
    On that note i have just received a lovely set of black projector headlights from 2xcite,they are uk ones. £219.99,I have also, as the bulbs are different from the oem headlights, ordered 4 H1 zenon blue bulbs. so i will post a finished picture when fitted

    They do look nice even in the box ;)

    Re: Euro Dezigns blue bulbs

    I don't think you will be disappointed with them Paul. I love them on mine! Ok, so they don't look OEM but the difference in the amount of light means you can actually see where you are going at night. Will yours actually be going out at night to appreciate them :p
