Philips H7 lights question

I have a left headlight and right sidelight out so thought it was a good time to upgrade. These look good:

But do I need to do anything extra or is it a case of just fitting them?

As long as they are H7 and it is H7 you need then they will just go straight in. I have "90% brighter" head lights in mine

Dunno about the blue look though? maybe a bit chavy for an alfa? although it might look good..... who knows lol

Any blue tinting will reduce the lumens coming out. That's not a good idea at any time let alone on such a poorly designed reflector the 156 has. Legal, stick to the Philips mentioned above (approx 1600 lumen). Slightly illegal, get Osram Hyper H7 CP64217 (2100 lumen). Make sure sidelight lamps are H6W. Only ones that fit.
