    Yellow headlight bulbs - Legal or not?

    So, one of my standard headlight bulbs has blown, and seeing as they were crap with two, it's pretty much like driving without lights on now.
    However because standard headlight, and mainbeam headlight bulbs are the same H7's in facelift lights, I was thinking of swapping my main beams over to the standard headlights.
    Only issue is, they're yellow.

    After a quick Google search, all the answers seem mixed, and I couldn't find anything on here either.

    So are yellow headlight bulbs legal in the UK?

    I'm only using them as replacements, they'll be on for about a week until my HIDs arrive, and I know, but atleast I tried looking, instead of just asking without doing ANY research
