    Allrighty all, just looking for some pointers or advice. I have a E60 M-Sport and I find the standard headlights poor for night time driving/vision. Can anyone recomend a better bulb replacement as I dont want to go down the route of xenons or expensive upgrades. Has anyone tried any upgraded bulbs and happy with the results ??

    Cheers

    I'd recommend Osram Nightbreakers, pretty cheap on eBay
    Put them in the E34 and they're a lot better than basic bulbs.

    I have recently put the halfords Super Brilliance bulbs in mine and they are a fair bit better than the standard ones but nothing special.

    The problem is the projector lenses the car has, which scatter the light beam and make any standard halogen perform badly.
