    The car's are great. I drove mine for 150k loved it. But the headlights are crap like i said.

    Improvement can be gained by fitting relays
    The next A3/A4 Lights are much worse,

    What a waste of a comment! thanks for nothing.

    OP - difficult to answer, there are loads of bulbs out there that advertise 100% increases in output and I saw some in Halfords last week offering 170% extra output compared to a standard bulb. There is the whole argument of "fit a HID kit, or fit LED headlights" but there is the obvious legal issues / MOT issues. To start with id try the halfords bulbs mentioned above, if they are no better, you can easily take them back. Id also check your lenses are 100% clean and free from excessive scratches / yellowing. There are plenty of kits out there to remove this if needed.

    1. Itís youíre
    2. I didnít say 160 watt off road bulbs - Iíd stated a % increase in power output as sold by Halfords which are advertised a road legal.

    It is "as road legal" not a road legal.
