A lot of modern cars have poor headlights compared to older cars.

On my 156 I fitted Phililps Vision plus and the improvement was quite dramatic.

I went for just replacing the standard bulbs with Osram Nightbreaker Unlimited (H7 55W) in the end.. HID/Xenons would have been ideal, but to do it "properly" (IE strip out the lamp unit, open the sealed case, fit projector lenses etc) is either expensive or a load of faff I can't quite be bothered with..

Bulbs were the cheapest and easiest option.. Only about 15 to buy a set of bulbs, and 10 mins fiddling to fit them. It is a little fiddly removing the catch to get the bulbs in/out.. But nothing a good rummage around doesn't sort out!

So far so good, and I'd definitely say they're an improvement over the stock bulbs.
