Have you got photos of the light output of your HIDs (preferably up against a wall) as I'm surprised you think it's worse than the halogens. I would agree that the width of the light spread may be narrower, but not that there's is overall less light on the road.

You can use H7 bulbs as well but HIDs are more brighter and give more of OEM look if you know what I mean mate and that's reason all of us here fitted hids

I would say Hids mate but I let you decide

Yeah i had H7 all this time. During day time no probs but night time is bad especially if there is no other lights around.
I ordered now 35w 5000K hid kit. I understand that is the option that most of you went for.
Is it difficult to install them on Depos?

I have no idea how difficult to fit after headlights fitted mate as we did it when headlights were out but I do know High beam bulbs are nightmare to change mate .

perhaps someone else can help who fitted HId afterwards.
