    Bright headlight bulbs?

    I want to replace the rubbish standard dipped beam bulbs with some really good bright ones. Can anyone recommend some good ones?

    if you don't want hids then night breakers and diamond vision tend to get decent reviews

    I think these are the ones I got

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/PHILIPS-X-TREM...item4cececc1e4

    When I fitted them I changed one bulb to compare it to standard, and it is a lot brighter, also a much 'whiter' light, whereas I would say cheaper bulbs can look a little yellowish

    I just got some Halfrauds Super Brilliance... definately brighter and crisper lighting, though whoever thought of the hatch in the wheel arch idea needs shooting in the bloody head. Took me almost 2 hours to fit 2 bulbs as you need eyes on the ends of you fingers and hands smaller than a babies'.

    I have Phillips Bluevision all round on the VXR, fantastic bulbs, bright white light, and with mains on, it's like daylight.

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
