just be careful, there are some philips ones that look nice and bright/white but if it bothers you they are illegal for road use

narva +50 dude they are pretty long lasting and give a good light output but are not white. from experience having the cheap white lights seems to have poor light distance.

i use Phillips Blue vision 4000k (ADR approved) and you really can tell the difference from a standard globe to these so much whiter... Phillips do make a Crystal Vision 4300k (non ADR approved) i havent seen these in action but there are illegal

I had Phillips Blue Vision, worked good but lasted a whole 7 months! They both blew within a week. Now have Narva Artic Blue which seem to be working fine so far (only put them in yesterday)

Narva arctic blues are the go, they put out a nice light,they are standard wattage so they wont kill your lenses or reflectors and they are legal(ADR APPROVED)

They sell for around $45 a pair and they are more readily available from most retailers than some of the other brands!
