To kick this off, my cool blue's ain't let me down and as I just said on another thread, even the Missus says how much cleaner n brighter they are over the original bulbs.

This come up in a previous discussion mate.

The hypers aren't E marked and aren't road legal. Off road use only I'm afraid.





Ain't that right Clive ;)

I have had 6000k Xenon bulbs in ( cheap Chinese ones) and found these were slightly more purple/blue than the led DRL's

Now they have blown :( and one melted to the projector ( never buying cheapo again)

Going for the proper Osram 4500k bulbs, same colour as used in the Audi S line xenons which match the LED DRL's perfectly, shame there 60 per bulb!!!

I think the fuse for the headlights is on the passenger footwell fuse board. Anyone know which one?? I will have a look in the Haynes manual later as this will be a cheaper fix than ford doing it if the fuse has gone. Would be worth a try first. Do all the other lights work ( side lights, etc..)

Okay so if only the one bulb isn't working then it's not the fuse. Sounds like a wiring fault. You could check the connector to see if all the pins and sockets are in contact. Other than that I can't think of much to help ( not an electrical genius ) :P

If you can't fix it sounds like ford garage is best option mate
