Ive had hids few times and they where pretty good, Had 6k in dips and 4.2k in full beams, Try some yellow bulbs or super white xenon bulbs if ye don't wanna use hid's

will try the hids and see how we get on, the lenses are projector type and i heard that they are best for hids.... if they dont work i will look at a higher watt bulb or as you say Dan, get xenon, just wanted peoples opinions, or if anyone has done anything with them before

May as well walk in front of the car with a candle.

Look into polishing the lenses Dave they might be mad yellow so that'll dull the lights. If you don't want to go down the HID route then Osram nightbreakers are mega. I have them as fulls in the teg and find them excellent. Not mega bucks either.

I found a good polish of the lenses did the trick in my old car aswell, might be worth a try before spending money on bulbs?

Im with Lee on the Osram, the bulbs in my car were cack, so I bought some Osram Nightbreaker bulbs, they are not as good as a quality set of HID's but cheap and definately a big improvement.
