I recently bought Philips Diamond Vision 4000k dipped headlight bulbs and they're no better than cheap Halfords bulbs. Powerbulbs have offered to take them back and refund me my money. They cost nearly £30 and I don't really see why as they are anything but remarkable. I posted pics in my project thread and they look yellow.

 

I've ordered the set in the link and I'll report back.

Got the bulbs from Ebay. Must say I'm impressed at what you get for £15. I can already see that the dipped headlights are whiter looking than the far more expensive Philips bulbs I purchased. I'll get some pictures up soon.

They don't specify them being road legal which probably means they're not.

 

Be careful with these as you might find they cause dazzle and being pulled by the plod and failing your MOT!

 

Then again, I haven't seen these bulbs in the flesh so they might not be as bright as those stupid annoyingly bright ones the chavs are all using!

I have CREE H8 in my fogs and passed MOT no problems.

Pretty sure front fogs aren't checked on MOT anyway.

Any way to tell if this set of bulbs are legal?

The bulbs from Ebay look perfectly legal. I tried them out last night and they were no worse than extortionate bulbs at £30 a pair. The dipped beam bulbs aren't yellow looking either which is nice. I have Cree foglight bulbs but haven't tried them yet.

Led will never be legal in headlight or fog light fitting due to the nature of l.e.d light it cant be focused on a fixed point in the distance,
Led spreads equal light in equal directions, thus being great for position marking illumination such as parking lights and day time running lights but not in fogs,
However the cree fitted in fogs wont get you pulled by cops but perhaps by dolly birds and high street honeyz
