I've just got the cool blue h7 and h1 mate. Ain't got the side lights yet.

A combo you may wanna go for is cool blue h7 and nightbreaker plus h1

I have cool blue H1 and H7. With Philips bluevision side bulbs (purely because no cool blue ones were available when I needed them)
If you search the forum I posted videos of the bulbs in action so you can see the quality of light coverage and intensity on motorway, country and urban roads.

No mate the cool blue h1s are great in my opinion, can't fault em. But its a popular combination, as the nightbreaker plus's are meant to be slightly brighter than the cool blue, but not as white.

So what somr people do is go for the cool blue h7 as it will be used all the time n its whiter, but go for the nightbreaker h1 for that slightly more brightness when its needed.

Or just get the cool blue h7 and h1 like Clive n I. I personally can't fault em having used em on narrow windy country unit roads at night, the difference in light output n brightness is imense compared to stock bulbs n i'm happy with em. Was just giving you options as the nightbreakers are apparantly even brighter, but not as white as i said.

See Clives videos n you'll see how good they are.
