Lol I've been pulled a few times but always just random checks one of them simply because the pair had just started a ten hour shift and I quote "because we were bored" lol I hate traffic police

Lol its the first time I've ever had flashing lights behind me when I know I've pushed the limits of what you can get away with a wee bit lol.

About ten minutes ago I was approaching a set of traffic lights which suddenly turned to amber now I was maybe 3-4 meters away from the lights with a car right up my backside and I'll admit that I was speeding ever so slightly, anyway I decided that the guy behind me was too close for me to put the anchors on so I went on through the amber. Just as I was half way through I noticed a police car at the junction waiting and my heart sank when I suddenly saw the blue flashing lights and heard the siren! Expecting the worse I went to pull up but then realised he'd actually stopped the guy who had been driving right up my rear who had subsequently followed me through the lights! Never felt so relieved in my life lol

#289845 Help! Fiesta Mk7 Headlight Bulbs!

Posted by DanGersFord on 13 September 2013 - 08:23 AM

Take it from someone whos wasted probably over £200 trying different bulbs just to get that effect, the only ones thatll give you that icy white colour is either the philips diamond vision or osram hyper blue. Both arent strictly legal, but ive never so much as had a funny look off the police, at worst if the police pull you, you'll be asked to change the bulbs but they dont cause too much glare like fitting HIDs would because they are just halogen bulbs plus the thicker blue coating prevents it causing glare to oncoming drivers. You wont fail your MOT for the bulbs like you would with HIDs cause they cant check the bulbs.


#289824 Help! Fiesta Mk7 Headlight Bulbs!

Posted by DanGersFord on 12 September 2013 - 11:26 PM

If you want that bright icy white look plus decent light output the only way to do it is with HID's which are illegal to fit unless they come fitted as standard from the manufacturer. There is no legal halogen bulb that will give you a decent icy white light plus decent light output because in order to get that colour the bulbs need to have a thicker blue coating which reduces the light output. You can try philips diamond vision or osram hyperblue, they arent strictly road legal but they'll both give you the colour your after but the light output isnt as good as normal bulbs, you'll be seriously unlucky if you ever.get pulled for.fitting them though. If you want deceng brightness go for Osram nightbreaker plus bulbs, they're more of a yellow light colour but give you a much better light output.
P.S. Id avoid unbranded bulbs from ebay especially LED's because the very rarely last long you're better off paying the extra and sticking to branded.bulbs such as philips, osram, ring, prism etcthey're much better quality and last alot longer

This is a move by ford due to a high number of the higher spec cars being broken into/stolen etc.
