    Hi
    Been down the stickies and can't see anything.
    Currently got standard high beam, i.e. yellow.
    What size bulb is it ?
    Any recommendations or links?

    H7 is the standard size for them.

    Osram nightbreakers are pretty good and get decent reviews, however I just got some for the wifes care from Lidl, they had some in there for £3.99, I went for the Xenon ones instead of the other +50% more light ones and they have made a massive difference.

    100w will be too hot and may ****** the wiring the nightbreakers are good

    Cheap bulbs marketed as xenon, super bright white and all the rest aren't really anygood from my experience, they might look brighter but the actual beam they produce and more importantly the cut off don't compare to a branded decent bulb.

    Fit some osram nightbreakers, about £12 off ebay and be done :icon_thumright:

    as you can get a set off ebay for just over £4 for a set of 100w high beam bulbs I am gonna try a set as hardly use my high beam but when I do I would like to be able to see more if possible.

    Gonna also get some 6000k xenon bulbs the main beam D2S ones and see if I can match them all nice n crisp white

    I like halfords rally bulbs, with a trade card they are about 3quid each, had them in my Leon, focus and fiesta with no problems using existing wiring

    Got the night breakers in, don't seem any better on the drive! Can't go out yet as waiting for dip stick replacement.
    With only one in, couldn't tell which was the new one!
    Hope it better when I can get out......
