Osram Cool Blue H7 lightbulbs..any good or a gimmick??

Hello all.
Looking to replace the headlight bulbs on my 147, as you all know the lights on a 147 are complete pants, have any of you out there tried these bulbs on your car, if so are they any good?

They're blue because there's a filter on them, and a filter blocks some of the available light.

They're designed to help you look like a chav, rather than to be better lights

If you want the lights to actually be more useful, look for the +x% bulbs. Osram Nightstars are one I think, but I can't remember for sure.

There used to be +30% and +50% ones, but I'm sure I've seen +80% models more recently. Osram and Philips models have the best reputations (or did last time I looked)

Irish, I have got Halfords Ultra Brite (or something like that!) They are 90% brighter apparently. Well, I think they are very good, they are much much brighter then the original ones. They are a much whiter light. I'll check on the make when I get home and let you know.
