10/12/2004 20:07:52   Richard   Hi, Just wondering if it's possible to increase the power of a 95s head lights. Whats the brightest bulbs I can fit or do I need to put a different light in alltogether. Any suggestions as driving home at night they don't seem to bright.

Fancy bulbs are quite expensive though, 25 - 30 for the pair.

15/12/2004 10:28:07   Alec   It is just the fitting type - you need H4

Thanks for the advise I got some bulbs from Powerbulbs. Very quick service and now I can seen the road.
