I've fitted Xenon bulbs to my '84' UR-q, they are transform the naff
light output from the standard european . Before I was using H4
bulbs of 90/130 watts, but now I'm using standard 55/60w Xenon bulbs
and I'm impressed.
They appear a very white light as opposed to the yellowish tinge
compared to halogen. However they are quite expensive at about
GBR7.50 to GBR10.00.
Broke, but quietly happy
