    The rule with Xenon is, that the lower the "K" the more light on the road. Therefor (and because the car is french) I went for the 3000K
    I bought them off Fleabay... Cheap..

    They are D1S in the Facelifts. I found that the 5000k are spot on, they look more like the A4 S-line colour bulbs

    they are D1S on facelifted models and D2S on pre-facelift vectra, following link is of great help with identifying bulb types http://am_application.osram.info/publish/index_en.html

    a word of caution. The figure in kelvins (K) 4100/4300/5000 etc.. is temperature of the light. Doesn't have anything to do with intensity. Xenon bulbs (or burners) with higher temperature (above 5000) have more blue light whereas bulbs with 4100-5000 have sort of white light. Also the higher the temperature the less light (lm) there is which is the figure to look at if you want more light. So 4300K bulbs will produce more light than 8000K say. Lot of people think if they swap for 8000K bulbs they will have load of light but oposite is the true, there might be real life application for such bulbs but I think you'll find you won't see even as much as with your current bulbs especially on wet roads. Last but not least, in parts of EU bulbs with temperature of light over 5000/6000K are illegal.
