    Have a look at the Autoexpress test on bulbs, I have just invested in a pair of H7s manufactured by Philips under the name x-treme. These seemed to be better than the Nightbreakers in the test. Have not used as yet but will update by Saturday. About £15 on ebay from Acebulbs.

    I've just fitted Osram nightbreakers. Dipped beam (H7) there is no difference whatsoever compared with the previous bulbs fitted, but they do seem brighter on main beam (H1).

    I've just fitted a set of Philips Xtreme (£22 off eBay) and they are brighter and maybe a slightly whiter light than standard bulbs but thats about it. I think I'm going to look at doing Duncan's mod for pre-facelift headlights now to get a bit more range.
