    Have you tried the headlight aim mod?

    Essentially, if you adjust them slightly upwards, they are better.

    Simply put, drive up to about 6 - 10 feet from a wall etc, put the aim selector switch (next to headlight switch) to zero, draw a line on the wall corresponding to the upper edge of the light beam pattern, then switch the headlight aim down by 2 clicks. Then manually adjust the headlight aim adjusting screws on the headlight units, so the beam pattern top re-aligns with the line you drew earlier.

    You will notice a huge difference. Or you can fit new bulbs, BUT if the aim could be improved on too, then it will be a double edged sword.

    Sorry, can't help with other bulbs, as I have never needed to replace one on mine.

    Do the aim mod and fit some of THESE. I've just fitted them and they are much better than the standard lamps.

    I've changed the main beam for some Ultra blue H1's too. Much better now
