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

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

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.

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.

Cool, and here I am with the car but haven't ordered the bulbs yet. I think I'll get the same H1s but also the Night Breaker H7s. And I might as well detango while I'm at it.

Yeah, but I'm hoping they will match the colour of the DRLs as others have said, I know they're still a bit yellow but should look much better than standard. I hope I can try one on the driver's side without taking the whole unit out, then if I'm not happy with it I can go for something else.
