    I need to replace my headlight bulbs as the one has gone and would like some recommendations please.

    I fitted some Osram Nightbreakers about 18 months ago which are in my opinion, ****. Just as yellow as standard and no brighter.

    I want as bright and as bright white as I can get :)

    I had this same problem a few weeks ago when one of my bulbs blew. After doing a bit of research I went for Halfrauds ultra brilliance bulbs. They are quite expensive, I think I paid around £19.99 per bulb but in my opinion they are fantastic. A much whiter and brighter light. Often down country lanes I don't even need full beams on. They have a wider coverage too. I'll try and get some pics up this evening for you if you like?

    Currently running blue lens bulbs which give out a pure white with a slight blue tint colour. They match up better with my LED sidelights which is y i went for them.
