    Philips Xtreme are considered the best in the biz (80% brighter); Osram do 90% brighter but many people (myself and Auto Express) say their quality is variable (i.e. one of their bulbs may meet their 90% claim, the other may be 50% or so). Having said that, the Vec-C/Signum h/lights aren't very good, so even these bulbs don't make your h/lights suddenly seem excellent, hence a (good) after-market HID conversion may be a better bet. Based on personal experience I recommend these:
