    Default Best replacements for OEM bulbs?

    Im looking at changing the oem headlight bulbs as the light intensity and distance is very poor to say the least - what would you guys reccommend?
    im after something fairly white instead of the yellow ones I have and I also want the beam to project much further - seen people on here talking about philips and osram but unsure which to go for as there are so many conflicting views.
    Any ideas? or has anyone got pics of theirs to post so I can see?
    Cheers

    phillips or osram are the best in the market, phillips bluevision are very good but also pricey. i've got osram dipped beam bulbs on mine and very happy with them, went for the super bright ones instead of the ice white, with a blue tint (they may not be the actual names of the bulbs by the way)

    i may be mistaken but i think we've got a discount setup with one of the big online companies.

    do a search of this site using the search tool on the toolbar for headlight bulbs and i'm sure you'll come across pages and pages of discussion

    thanks for the info upto now, im not sure which is the best the philips GT150 or the blue vision then you have the many options from osram coolblue and silverstar. dont want to make the mistake of purchassing the wrong ones only to be nearly £30 lighter and dissatisfied with the results.
    anyone got any pics?
