    If you get the osram nightbreakers or the bright philips ones they will only last around a year give or take a few months.

    For the same price roughly get a hid kit from china and get some decent lighting up front.

    I went hids after my osram nightbreaker plus bulbs died within a week of each other at 13 months old.

    If you really dont want to go the hid route then osram nightbreaker plus or philips extreme will do.

    Im sure others will have other options too.

    Remove the air filter and washer bottle neck and should just about have enough room.

    But personally i would drop the front bumper and loosen of the head light clusters to give you more than enough room.

    Have a look in the how to section here for some instructions.

    There real easy to change about 5-10 mins max.
    Ive got the osram night breaker plus in mine and they are a vast improvement on normal h7 bulbs but I will be looking at hids once these fail.

    I've got 65w osram bulbs in mine. Definate improvement over standard bulbs but I imagine they aren't anywhere near as bright as a hid kit.

    Correct. A 35w 6000k HID gives out approx 3 times more light than that of a 55w halogen.
