I've ordered a new Corsa C Sxi, and i was wondering if you can change the headlight bulbs to make them look more blue, like cars with xenon lamps. Do these bulbs get hotter? and will they melt anything cos the Corsa C headlamps are plastic.

Cheers guys

yeh you can just buy replacement bulbs that give a similar effect.
remember that the corsa c's use H7's.

H7 is the type of bulb you need. So when you go to get them you want H7 Xenon bulbs.

yeah, its the type of bulb you will need. the size and the fitting are different. they are also much more expensive than all the other bulbs.

nope, as the C already uses H7's as standard.
just make sure your replacments ones are H7 - 55W.

Ok, have you seen any? Do they look quite blue, and are they similar to the xenon or do they just look shite ?

i've seen the Ring Ice blue bulbs and Halfords' Laser blue bulbs. these give off the bluey/white light your after.
looks ok like, just wont look as good as the real xenon and HID lights you see lol

technically not legal, but they point downwards correctly like the oe bulbs so they are not at all blinding, just look a hell of a lot nicer and make other car's lights look yellow in comparison.

Get them!!
