Sound and Vision

Hello. Can anyone advise me on:

a) whether it's possible to make the headlights any more powerful/efficient.
b) what's the best range of headunits to replace the factory fit unit with. Not fussed about Sat-nav unless adding it is an easy job.

The car is a 159 3.2 Q4 Qtronic Ti.

Thanks.

I've changed my headlights to Philips 130% H7 and they're far better than the standard headlight.

The most popular solution appears to be aftermarket HIDs, these are a pretty simple fit (though you will need a small hole in the back cover for the light), read the two threads below:

Same here, always do this when I change cars. Did headlight on 159 last week but didn't the main beams as couldn't get at backs of lamps for all wiring, lack of space etc.

Regarding the ICE I've had good experiences with double DIN pioneer jobs... A bit of a fiddley afternoon job but DAB and Bluetooth are essential bits of kit for me
