Yellow Xenons?!
« on: June 06, 2015, 12:15:31 AM »
Just bought myself a 2006 1.6D, and to my surprise the lights weren't as I would expect. I was aware that all models came with Xenons fitted as standard, but mine are Yellow.

Is anyone aware if this is standard, or whether the previous owner was getting a little bored of the standard xenons (whatever colour they were)?

From what I'm aware of they were standard on the sport trim only. Otherwise you'll have halogen bulbs in projectors which look the same as hids when off...but are normal light colored when on. If you were to pull a bulb I think you'll find you have H7 halogens.
