Get a set of Osram Nightbreaker + from Midas for R150 and then replace both your bulbs yourself. They give 100% better light than the standard bulbs. I've got them in my car and it only takes 15 minutes to replace. (10 minutes learning curve on the one and 5 minutes on the other light) just dont touch the bulb when replacing them, otherwise they will fail prematurely.

Replaced my dips and high beams with the Nightbreakers, so much better than the standard bulbs. Brighter and more white, but also fuller and throws a longer beam! Yep, R300 for four bulbs and relatively easy DIY. A bit fiddly on the left side, but really easy actually! As said, don't touch the bulb - best is to use clean tissue paper to prevent any greasiness from fingers getting onto the glass...

Just a quick question - are these Halogens or Xenon's, coz I'm looking to replace my halogens. They really are quite dim. I want to replace the lights entirely for a set of projectors or something like that in time, but for now maybe these will do the trick.

Thanks!

I see you have Nankang tyres, so non-RFT's - how did you get that right with motorplan? Just curious, couldn't even convince them to accept Hankook RFT's, because they're not BMW Approved tyres...
