<strong>I have been looking on e-bay and there is a company in Southampton advertising exeon bulb upgrades that will fit the 156 (they Say) £21 for dipped bulbs and main bulbs, is this a good idea? anyone got any thoughts??</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">These are Xenon- halogen normal style bulbs, and i have the Osram Silver star which are great (came first in a recent autocar test, second was Philips vision plus)both claim to give up to +50% over std halogen bulbs. Mine were about £18, but some of the +30% and +50% in the test were cr*p, so get the Osrams IMO. They wont be HID as above, which require completly diff wiring/fuses etc, and are not compatible with a normal lighting system - The GTA has lights as per AAV's 156 (
) fitted with either std bulb system, or same lights but HID bulbs/wiring etc - you cant upgrade the std buld system to HID, but can fit the GTA light unti as AAV done, which I recon is a top move, especially if you bumper has black inserts.
Oh BTW only upgrade the dipped bulbs, beam ain't worth the dosh unless your rallying threw a dark welsh forest!!
