    I have got some of those Osram 90% brighter ones. A lot of people go for the Philips one too. The ones I have got are a bit better than the original bulbs.

    Yep. H4 are a combined bulb. For those that have changed from factory fit, is it a noticible difference ??

    I changed to Phillips Vision+ as soon as I got the car -I came from an Omega with Xeons and really missed them
    Made a big difference!
    I've seen some posts elsewhere saying that the 90% night breakers have quite a short life, especially when used as dip beams.
