HeadLamp Bulbs. Opinions Please

My headlamp bulbs either dipped or main beam used to be white..tish, but more like amber now. Side Light bulbs are just useless candles. Instead of putting in standard ( Whats Fitted Alfa Bulbs ) what are the alternatives?? Also are these powerful bulbs you see advertised really worth it?

I put superlux ultra bright LED sidelights (£10 off ebay) in and they didn't work as well as I hoped they would. Yes they are 10X brighter than the standard sidelight bulbs but they are also longer meaning that they light up the rear of the headlight and not much else
They do give it a strangely menacing look though because the light is pure wite but hard to see. It's very hard to explain so I'll take a pic some night this week.
