    I'm after the above,but want something a bit brighter than the standard ones that look like two bowls of custard at night. Are they a combined main and dipped beam?. Can anyone recommend bulbs that will do the job please?. Ta.

    90/110 Watt bulbs work very well but are not road-legal

    They will not turn the warning lamp on the higher wattage ones would do, it make all the difference in seeing what you are going to hit, and takes away the shock element ;)
