I had an LED kit installed for about 10 months, I eventually went back to a halogen bulb as the LEDs started to flicker (they will never get close to the lifespan stated unless its a genuine philips/osram bulb). Also the LED looked better, but I got alot of light just infront of me and not much more after that. Driving on unlit A-roads at night was actually quite unnerving especially if I wasn't familiar with the road.
After that I went back to Osram night breaker unlimited which I've always been happy with as they're very good bang for buck. But most recently I've been using GE Megalight +130% and even switching to them from the Osram night breaker unlimited I noticed a good improvement.
Also one thing to note is that my headlights could do with a restore as they're starting to get cloudy but still have good visibility so that'd be worth doing if yours are starting to cloud up too. After one of the GE bulbs go, I will be replacing with Osram nightbreaker laser "next gen" which they just brought out in a H1 fitment aswell. rated at +150% bulb, looking forward to trying them.
Yes its annoying when a bulb blows but I enjoy trying the different ones when they do go. For me its just a hand inside the wheel arch job, those with mammoth paws might struggle a bit though.
Sorry about the long post, but I've been through quite a lot of bulbs over the years so thought i'd share my honest opinion, I'll stick to halogen unless obviously my far was fitted with HID as standard.
So I'd recommend GE Megalight +130
or Osram NB Laser next gen
. Always been pleased with Osram as the price always seems to be better than philips and philips bulbs definitely aren't twice as good.
