Ok so the night breakers make the sidelights look rather yellow, so need some whiter side lights, what is the deal with these, are they just ant w5w bulb...? Any particularly good or bad ones around?

Yep to the w5w

Most people go to led versions, which do work well, but tend to be more blue white than the nightbreakers, and then the cycle starts

I've got a various selection of LEDs from over the years, but haven't got around to playing with them to find the best match yet

Hi pliff, we have had Crees in for 18 months and still going strong, must have just been a bad set.

I've got LEDs in the Fog lights (rigged up as DRLs) and sidelights.

My DRLs cut out when the main beam is on, so I regularly drive with the two LED sets on. They are a very nice match on colour and nice and bright

When I have the main beam on with the night breakers and the LEDs in the sidelights, the night breaker colour is disappointing....
I think I recall others posting similar thoughts....
