    I put some super ebay 100w (as aposed to 55w standard) dipped beam bulbs in mine, although i have pre facelift it made a nice difference & for around £10 winner!

    I put some high powered bulbs in mine, but i think it just increased the full beam, no effect on the dash, had them over a couple of years now.
