    OK wanted to replace the bulbs in the lights for the winter coming

    in my e46 i replaced with Ring Xenon Max they are good ( plus i get them trade price)

    according to the ring website both light fittings are the same, two different if using standard bulbs as they are different wattage

    but on the Xenon Max they are the same but it seams i can only fit them to the head lights and will not fit the high beam

    don't know if it is just me and big hands here is the web site here

    I seem to recall some people fit Osram Nightbreakers as they are supposed to be brighter.

    The problem I had with night visibility was cured by fitting the after market angel eye headlights.

    I wanted to fit Philips lamps ( osram are actually made by Philips to a lesser speck under licence) ( i work in the street lighting company who is a supplier of them)

    but i have tried the Ring Xenon Max on my e46 and they are very good.

    I do not want the expense of the angle eye kit.
