Heres a pic of the Halfords 12000k interior lights I fitted couple days ago, nice and white no yellow and not turning the car blue



Any chance you can link the Halfords website with these bulbs mate?



Cheers,


Jim

I feel I've been robbed! These are the same bulbs in the shop white pack for 6000k and light blue for 12000k same looking bulb tho. In the shop there £9.99 for 2 online £4.99 WTF!!!

http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_1000015_langId_-1_categoryId_165538

This is the packet I got, when it got these I did notice the 6000k in a new packaging tho, 2 bulbs being held at 45 degrees in the hard to open plastic packets

Looked in horror on the interior of the cab after I let the stealer clean it for the first time ever! Not happy! So far that bloody car has had a new roof, new wheel, two new tyres after they deteriorated, front bumper re sprayed twice after a 'staining' under the paint. I'm guessing it was a Friday afternoon car! Can't wait until the spring to get rid, challenge is trying to persuade Bev to stay VeeDub.
