10-15 mins, bit awkward getting the unit out but easy enough DIY.

Well just ordered some Philips Crystal Vision H7 which was £22.95 for the dipped beam

Also some of the Osram Nightbreaker Unlimited H1 £10.95 for the high beam.

Seem a good setup!

That's exactly what I'm thinking of ordering :)

 

Okay yeah i have looked at them what sort of colour look do they have?

 

I looked on Osram's website and there is the Nightbreaker which is meant to be about the same colour as the DRLs, then there are 2 which are bluer, one road legal and one not.

 

Well just ordered some Philips Crystal Vision H7 which was £22.95 for the dipped beam

 

Those aren't road legal are they? I know that's not a problem to a lot of people though, especially when it's 3 years til first MOT.
