Hello,
 
I told myself I wouldn't start mucking around with the Fiesta........ but it's started :P . 
 
My 3 series had really good xenon's which tracked the car in front and had auto high beam which has probably set my standard a bit high, but none the less, I felt that the stock bulbs that come with the Titanium X are pretty poor.
 
I bought Osram Night Breaker Unlimited H7 12V 55W to use as my dipped headlights and after reading and following Rogue_Shadow's how-to (Cheers mate :D)
I decided to get Philips Silver Vision indictor bulbs. 
 
I took me a while to release when I was on AutoBulbs why it said my main beam bulbs were H15 and more importantly I couldn't get any decent makes of bulbs in that size. First off if your headlights have DRLS then your in the same boat as me and your main beam is a H15 - Nae luck.... and I don't really have an answer to the second apart from a quick Google search pretty much shows H15 bulbs being used as 'DRL' halogen lights on several types of car. I don't quite follow how the same type of bulb can be a DRL and a High Beam but who knows. 
 
I got stuck in about the replacement of the headlights today and once they were complete I went and got another set of the Philips Silver Vision to do the rear.... honestly, I'm promise I'm not mucking around with it!!!! :oops:  
 
The front got changed over no problem but the plastic screw on the offside light cluster must have been put on by a body builder or a machine, it took ages to try and get it loose.
 
All posts are pretty much pants without some photos so I've attached some below.
 
All in all from what I can tell the Osram Night Breakers are they are a lot brighter, definitely no blue colours coming from them but just how good they are I'll need to report back.
 
I really need to align my headlights so that's next on the to-do list.
 
Cheers!

Looks good, when I was looking at this i agreed there wasn't any blue but i suppose its a fine line.

 

Changing these headlights compared to the old corsa i had is a doddle! 

 

P.s wish i had the titanium lights on mine!

Looking good. I have a set of Nightbreakers waiting for when I get my car. Yours looks a lot better with the silver visions too.

Your main beam bulbs are H11s on cars with LED DRLs (Titanium and Titanium X) Same as mine.

Yeah, I've got the OSRAM bulbs all around, there a lot brighter and whiter but no blue atall which I wasn't really happy about as the ones I got were cool blue or something g, still look good though
