H7 Osram Silverstar would be a good replacement. ebay has some, or places such as startledrabbit.com

Sorry to hijack the thread, but on a similar note. I purchased so h4's off ebay. One has broke so could someone suggest an alternative. Would h7's work on a Mk1 Punto?

Thanks, and sorry for hijacking your thread NAS

they have to have the same h number asthat is the fitment. h7 has diff conencteres to h4.

on a mk2 may be best to check exactly what yours out by taking one out if you can as someonethey are h4 and some h7. it should say on the buln if not you can check the connectors.

i got osram silver star very nice really noticed a difference especialy on dipped beam. also when you doing the bulbs dont expect a 5 min job lol the passenger side bulb is swine and you may need to remove the light unit to change it or to unbolt the fusebox and push thta back.

Does this mean H7's won't fit on the mk1 punto?

not on s or sx they wont, if you have h4 then you need h4 that is the bulb fitment type,

i use ring ultra xenon in my cars, i tried the osram silver stars and didnt think they were as good, 1 blew pretty quick as well i have now gone back to using ring :)
