    You have to look out for the power output as some are too high and can damage the wiring apparently. Plus they are illegal I think. Do a search on a the net on a bulb sight and I am sure you will be 'enlightened'! Ha Ha

    I have got Philips Visionplus and they are ok. They are about £15 on ebay. I also had some halfords superwhite or bluewhite and they were better than standard, just a little worse than the Philips ones.

    I bought those osram silverstars and they are much better than the super-bright Bosch jobs I had in there before. Bargain price off powerbulbs too. They throw in a free pair of sidelights but I haven't fitted mine yet - spent 45 mins carving my hand to pieces while trying then gave up.

    It depends on how you look at it, but IMO 8.99 for a set of so called Xenon bulbs is far too cheap for them to be of any signifcant quality. And knowing that you can make a good bulb and a bad bulb will always make me pay that little extra premium.

    Halfords is a suggestion nothing else, and all I mean is use reputable brands for bulbs otherwise you may well see yourself replacing them more often than you'd like.
