    There plenty of threads on here. Have a search for them.

    The 2 main headlight bulbs that folk have changed to are:

    Philips Power Xtreme and Osram Nightbreakers.

    Check the threads and you'll get plenty of info.

    Bearing in mind the delay for them to become fully bright, coupled with the fact that HIDs don't like to switched on and off at frequent intervals (shortens their life apparantly?), I would have thought HIDs for the high beam would be unsuitable.

    Although my dipped beam Osram nightbreakers only lasted 7 months, the high beam are still both ok (tempting fate aren't I?). Although they still look yellow in comparison to the HIDs I have for dipped beam, they aren't as yellow as bog standard bulbs are.
