Recommended Headlights

Ok people's, My AU XR6 blew its right side low beam headlight (how embarrassing!)

I've got a couple spare that I took out of my suzuki baleno before I got the ford, and am wondering if there's any problems with putting these in? Or would I be better buying a new set. I don't want to loose any of its current 'brightness', so is there anything special I need, or will any old 55-60 globes do the trick?

go to super cheap auto, 90/130 opti blue or 60/55 opti blue globes are great i have them in my EB cost 28.99 for the pair. give great light with decent vision in wet weather.

Does it have polycarbonate headlight lenses? If it does, putting higher wattage globes will discolour or otherwise damage them. My EF has polycarbonate lenses, and it is recommended that I go for the narva plus 30 or plus 50 globes - 30 or 50% brighter for the same wattage. I have those in now, and I'm really satisfied. I thought about getting the blue coloured ones, but the blue colour is achieved by blocking all the other colours of light - which to me means that they wouldn't be as bright.

Stick with 55/60 bulbs or you will damage the lenses.
