    E87..... Uprated lights options

    So looking to add more light at the front so I dont crash.......!!!

    Has anyone replaced the stock bulbs for anything aftermarket.

    Ideally I would like a blaze of white light from the front and have had a look at some of these on flea-bay.

    The repeater bulbs will actually be a little bit dimmer, but you loose the "fried egg" look.

    I had 95/100w bulbs in my Fourtrak and swapped them for some Osram Nightbreaker Plus 55w bulbs and the Osram's were so much better. Not used the 65w ones, but they must be pretty great. I would go for those if I were you.

    I'd go for Osram Nightbreaker Plus instead of those, got them in mine (dipped and main beam) and they're very good, best bulbs I've used other than OEM xenons.

    The ones in the second link aren't road legal, so I wouldn't bother with them.

    I have fitted Osram Nightbreaker Plus in a number of BMW's now and rate them pretty well - nice and cheap improvement without any errors or issues with the "footwell module".
