this is an older thread - are there any updates on which bulbs are best? There must be new ones out there by now lol
I replaced my low beams with some $30 LEDs from ebay a few months ago (yes, kinda pita to change but got them in eventually without taking apart anything other than taking the battery out), direct fit, didnt do any ballasts - could that be a reason why they are not as bright as I thought they would be? Seriously, I think the original halogens were brighter! I can´t see farther than 30ft on a dark country road LOL
Are there big differences between different brands/no names? it´s a jungle outthere :-D
cheers!

edited to add: has anyone tried the Philips Racing Vision GT200 (halogen)?

For the buck Katana bulbs from Amazon. There is a sharp cutoff so aim accordingly. Check out bulbfacts.com for reviews. I did try the Katanas in my reflector housed Jetta TDI and they were awful so YMMV.
