YAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!! You rock, Gav!!

I have always bought my bulbs through these guys. The delivery time from the UK to here is amazing! Once I got them within 3 days of ordering them! They have extremely competitive prices which I doubt you could find cheaper anywhere else + you always get a free set of blue (bright white) parking-light bulbs with every order.

Definitely recommend this company. They are very professional and always on time.

Alright, I'll email John again and tell him the new coupon code is still bogus.

But Dean, in the meantime you can email John Conboy at sales@powerbulbs.co.uk and he will still honour the 10% discount if you mention me and astinagt. You might have to get a refund on your credit card. It is in John's best interests to sort this out too, as he has to manually refund to give the discount otherwise.

Hi guys, let's see if we are 3rd time lucky with the coupon code. AYSCX1729 is the new code, I have updated the top of the page to suit. I will most likely order some Silver Vision Indicator bulbs this weekend, so I will know if the code works then myself. In the meantime, try the new code, and if it doesn't work, just contact them directly before and/after your order.

Actually, since the BA has gay headlights, I reckon you should look at some of the LED options once you know what type of globe socket you are looking for. They don't sell LED style headlights at powerbulbs, but if you have a look around, you might find something that works really well.

Addy: Nice to hear the coupon worked! The Philips H4 will come with a pair of parkers aswell, so you should have 2 sets including the free pair. It's been suggested before that the extra pair will work in the interior downlighting (not the festoon holder). Good choice on the Blue Vision by the way, they are very pleasent.

Plutonus: I can't find anything for headlight/highbeam use, but there is heaps of LED for all other car lighting. I did find one HID type LED projector, but I guess that market is still growing. I guess you could run +30, +50 brighter lighting, or if you are prepared to see an autoelectrician, there is Rally/GT rated lighting which are significantly brighter.

I dunno if the Blue Vision work for you without knowing what bulbs your BA uses. The Blue Vision come in a good range of bulb types, so there is no reason why they wouldn't make a bulb to suit the BA.
If you like blue tinge look, maybe consider the next step up from the Blue Vision (3500-4000K), which I think are Crystal Vision (4000-4300K). Crystal Vision make a nice little blue halo, where the Blue Vision despite the name, are a more pure cool white.

Which give the greater advantage in vision? I live sort of in the country and have alot of dark streets and I'd like a gain in light output aswell.

Thanks for your help so far!
