Hi, I have Osram Nightbreakers in mine, vast improvement over standard.
Cannot comment on the ones listed ( although LED Sidelights look cool! ).
Headlamp has to be removed, some say its hard, never had prob myself.
Remove T30 srew from top of lamp ( Flat screwdriver can also be used ) press 2X plastic tangs at bottom of lamps which can be accesses with a long screwdriver from above, lamp comes towards you, unplug and change Bulbs observing orientation of Bulb. Once lamp is in place ensure tangs are engaged and refit screw to the Witness marks to ensure similar alignment.

I too have the night breakers, though fitted to my Volvo, and these are great.

Just to add, I bought them from HERE plus a 10% discount as well!Edited by: lawe

-1 for osram bulbs. I fitted a set to my Alfa 156 and the first blew in 3 months, replaced the pair as I returned them to the store, again 1st of new pair (opposite side) failed in about 3 months. Replaced with Philips vision plus. Lasted until I sold the car, at least 12 months.
Philips dipped, main and silvered indicators in the max. Going strong, brighter than stock but still poor!

Osrams coupled with Italian wiring clearly a no-no ( as are double negatives )[img]smileys/smiley36.gif[/img].
They get brighter by running hotter, maybe a dodgy batch of Bulbs, poor metals for filament/insufficient gas?

My pair of Nightbreakers did 2 years in a Mondeo then I swapped them to my CMax where they've done 10 months and still going strong!

They have just brought out the Nightbreaker Plus which Osrams are saying last longer with up to 50% longer lifetime. Take a look click below <?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" />

Just bought Nightbreaker Plus H1 & H7 from eBay for my new C-Max, my present C-Max has Xenon headlight and to come down to OE is a bit of a jump.
I've seen the Osrams Nightbreaker Plus in another C-Max and I'm quite impressed, but nothing on the Xenon headlights.
I've just paid 16.94 Inc P&P for the Osrams Nightbreaker Plus H7 & 14.84 Inc P&P for the Osrams Nightbreaker Plus H1, both from eBay.
