    Terrible headlights - recommendations for bulbs?

    Thanks. I am yet to see the fittings, I will obviously soon do so to change the bulbs.

    I have just had a look, it has an adjuster under the headlight switch. The attached pic is exactly what it looks like. I take it that means I have halogens? Not actually sure where that puts me, does it mean I have no choice but to try the aforementioned aftermarkets like Osrams etc?
