Osram nightbreaker, cool blue intense and Philips X-treme are usually quite popular.

Cheers I see a lot of people driving round with really bright lights and always wondered if it was just a change of bulb I always thought that changing the bulb seemed to easy and that the dealer probably thought it would be better to put them in I've always found brighter lights to be safer do you know what type of bulbs to go for by any chance cheers

I have nightbreaker plus for dipped beam and cool blue intense for high beam and they have great range and brightness while still remaining road legal.
Car companies don't fit performance bulbs as standard because you have a trade off between brightness and bulb life.

They probably just not got your model on yet, you need H7 dipped and H15 main beam according to Autobulbs direct but any supplier will have these they are pretty standard.

Your Drl are in the same bulb as your main beam, which are the h15. It's a multi bulb, They only do the osram upgrade bulbs at the moment or caps that go over your standard bulb.
