Light Bulbs

Hi There,

I have read through a fair bit and got a lot of info however cannot seem to find direct info relating to colour temp (K) of standard OEM lamps.

I have a blown fog lamp H11 and was going to get a cheap one to replace that but trying to find a colour match is proving difficult as even ford service could not tell me the K value.

So a couple of questions...

1. Where in australia can i get a cheap H11 to match the OEM or 2 if necessary
2. Recommendations for replacing the entire lamp set with white light such as the OSRAM night breaker or is that all hype and there are others that are more suitable.

Cheers!

Look the comparisons online... I had osram that were great, slverstar ultras that were great... everyone has their prefered so you'll get mixes reviews... if you get 2 bulbs for 20$ they probably are not what you want...
