    not really a HID question but a HID related question. Im converting from the single reflector bulbs to twin reflector. I bought a H7R HID kit which is 6000k. now I need a H3 bulb. im looking to get one to match the HIDs and sidelights. I realise there is no point putting a H3 HID bulb in there as flashing would wreck the bulb.

    so my question is does anyone know of a H3 bulb which would match the 6000k HIDs?

    What's the point in getting a main beam bulb to match HID? No one would ever see the colour difference. If you wanted halogen h3 bulb to match 6k, it'd have to be a heavy blue tinted bulb, which would significantly reduce light output.

    End of the day, no point changing your mainbeam bulb to alter colour. Just go for osram nightbreakers.

    Cos it would drive me mad knowing that the dipped beam is white and the meain beam is yellow.

    I dont really min about reduced light output a the HIDs will be bright enough on their own. what colour output are the nightbreakers? iv heard very yellow.

    Nightbreakers have the best light output you will find, and are generally the whitest (excluding the poor quality blue tinted bulbs).

    If you have correctly aligned HIDs (H7R's), you will still need main beam bulbs (bright ones), as they should not emit light above a certain height.

    I had Nightbreakers in mine before I got HID's, they're not white at all lol. Not as yellow as standard bulbs but they certainly aren't white. But still, you'd be safer just going for something like Osram Nightbreakers or Ring bulbs for the main beam to give you a good light output.

    Less chance of melting the lens. Probably attract less unwanted attention too.

    Yep it would work, H7R is H7R, it doesn't matter what car manufacture they say it's for.
