    Everyone is going for white fogs and here's me trying to get the yellowest light possible.

    It also gives you an extra large Indicator when cornering or going around a roundabout :whistle:

    I suppose if you can't match the white, go for yellow..

    I was going to go for yellow originally but I thought the yellow forward light was now outlawed in construction and use?

    @Thogg ?

    Lets hope its just a loose connection. Not noticed mine playing up - but then I rarely get to drive it.

    So can anyone on here recommend a good H11 replacement (not bothered what colour ) that won't dazzle other road users?

    I'm happy with my LEDs but if you are looking for a Halogen brighter replacement the PIAA lamps gets good reviews.

    Cheers for the "light" reading material @Thogg :eek::D:rofl::thumbsup::whistle:

    I did note some interesting points, will have to read it better though, and refer to con & use as well. There is no max wattage mentioned under the section below, BUT the bulbs MUST be marked and a filament type if fitted to a filament light, that's why they have different fittings on LED bulbs.

    Sorry, was ref the H4 saga in wattage, but the section ref filament bulbs deals with our upgrades from a filament to an LED hybrid replacement.

    PART IIRequirements relating to optional dim-dip devices and running lamps
    There is no requirement relating to an optional dim-dip device or an optional running lamp.


    (Regulations 18 and 20)

    SCHEDULE 4

    PART IRequirements relating to obligatory dipped-beam headlamps and to optional dipped-beam headlamps to the extent specified in part ii

    I have the same lamps, no errors and look fine (much nicer white) not sure how much brighter they are though, I also ordered the LED indicator lamps but they didn't wrk correctly even though they were supposed to be can bus friendly, got a refund.
