Default Xenon bulbs..

I find my headlights not really giving very good light.

How is it with the xenons, might the lighting performance reduce by age?

Agree with David, after his recommendation of the Philips xtreme vision bulbs I bought a set. To be honest I didn't notice a difference at first but mostly driving at dusk. Tested them properly at midnight the other day and they are brilliant like having full beam on all the time.

Trying a set of these either in full beam or wife's car next http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/New-Ring-H...item5d3703af53

Ok.

Just for info, my car has factory fitted Xenons, so I suppose those H7 ones will not fit.

Am I right the xenon bulb I'm after has D2S socket? (Just so I won't order anything wrong)

Seem like Xenon lamps has a life span of about 2-3000hours, and light will reduce quite a lot after this limit.

Think I'll go for a pair of these:
2x 6000K D2S Philips Ultinon Xenon | eBay

6000K seem to be bright white, which I guess will look good

Don't buy off ebay... Too many fakes knocking about , I would buy these if I were you Osram D2S Upgrade Cool Blue Intense Bulb . I bought theses for my coupe Osram Xenarc D1S Upgrade Cool Blue Intense Bulb and they are amazing they look so much better than the factory fit osram bulb and the light output is amazing.
