    I found osram nightbreakers to be good mate but as others HID will beat any uprated bulb, just depends on what your budget is mate.

    Mine lasted approx 8 months. That's the trouble with bulbs which claim to be brighter. They're worked harder to get the extra performance out of them and their lifespan is shortened because of it.

    HIDs is the way to go.

    Post in your local area and see if anyone would fit them for you.

    If you were local I could have done them for you.

    Od fit a dedicated kit that is designed to work on cars that have canbus networks.

    eg, THESE

    I fitted these back in Sep 2009. No bulb failure errors from the cars check system (yet).
