Not sure what bulbs I have but my headlights are very poor. What can I do to improve them without blinding other drivers?

I hate been blinded on the way home from work. Actually I'm suprised I have not crashed the amount of times it happens every night. It's because the road has lots of bends and humps.

Personally i cant say enough about a HID kit, JD rides has the H7 kit for the coupe. It doesnt blind people or anything and ive never been flashed at etc.

You could go for the uprated bulbs like the nightbreakers if you dont want the HID route.

Are the nightbreakers really any better than the unbranded 55w White Xenon's available elsewhere?

I also agree that HID kits are very good, less than £50 with 20 minutes to install and your laughing

Yep.
Nightbreakers all the way.
When I fitted mine, I was stunned.
I have 100W in the main beams and I swear the Nightbreakers are brighter.

I wouldn't really trust ebay with those prices, you might not actually be getting the genuine article.

The forum has a discount with these guys, just enter "10off" at the checkout:
