    Having tried Osram NB's, and finding like most other high performance bulbs, they don't last very long (8 months in my case) because they're worked a lot harder, I wish I had not bothered with the NB's and gone straight for the HIDs.

    You should be fine so long as they aren't too blue, and even then there probably isn't much they could do. 43k-60k seem to be good for light and colour. I've not got mine yet but will be going for 50k.

    I've got the nightbreakers and are an improvement, but got some 55w HID 5000K in my garage waiting to go in after my mot in two weeks.
    I would save the £13-14 and put towards HIDS. Wish i had, although had 11 months out of the NB'S without fault.
