What is the best way to uprate the dipped headlight bulbs on my W211 E-class? The current halogen bulbs give a poor image and are not up to the car's performance. The headlight lenses are not opaque so it must be the bulbs. I've fitted Nightbusters to the main beams; should I do the same for the dips or is there a better solution?

Halfords don't do them. Amazon is your best bet or Eurocarparts.

Also make sure the lenses are crystal clear and if not get a cleaning kit. Meguiars and 3M both do them
