Night time driving is much better - but nowhere near as good as with Xenons. Still for £15 a pair you can't go wrong. A mere £30 sorts out the dipped and main beams with no danger of error codes or melted plastics.
By the way, the standard OEM dipped/main bulbs are Osram (but *not* Nightbreaker Plus), the Nightbreaker Plus bulbs give a much whiter light (and are less embarrassing, lol).
Easy to change bulbs on your F10 ? It was a mare on my previous X5 E70 used to rip your hands to bits , I think I'll give these a go for £30.
