With it starting to get darker earlier, I have been out more recently driving in the dark. I've noticed the throw of the light on dipped beam is not very far (although bright enough). I was wondering if I changed the bulbs to some like these if it would actually make any difference? - Wouldnt want to waste £30 on bulbs that are just brighter and will not last as long.

Thanks in advance for the responses.

Not sure about those, but OSRAM Cool Blue Intense or Nightbreaker's are what I'm considering, both are great.

Yes I am running these and they are good.
Had HIDS in till one of the bulbs went and changed to those.

Not up to the full HID brightness but close.

Get flashed more with these than I ever did with the HIDS

For info I drive on unlit country roads.

Right, HID's annoy me to hell (in reflector's, projectors tend to be fine) but come on, you can tell a HID from a standard bulb even if they're 'HID look' because they never are, maybe if people weren't staring into your beams they'd have nothing to moan about. Jeez. Besides would they prefer to dazzle you to end up running in them or something? Rant over :P

Well, I went for the bulbs I listed above (including osram 'cool blue' side lights). Finally installed the new bulbs, and going to test them tonight. - I wanted to be legal by just changing the bulbs instead of going for HIDs.

Simple process overall. Took much longer on the first one (decided to do the one near battery first and take my time with it) and the second one went much quicker. Only bit I don't like about changing them is the 'lovely' plastic clip which feels/sounds like you are breaking something. And that I didnt hear it clip go back in really, however it must be in, as they both fit perfectly back in place.

I'll report back again later if these bulbs are worth it. Maybe even a picture. However no before shot... I'm not that organised.

Cool Blue's get a +1 off me, much more light than the Halfrauds ones I had in.
