    Philips X-TremeVision or Osram Night Breaker Plus are both supposed to be really good.

    Hi what year is your CR-V, mine is a 2004 and I wish to upgrade the headlights, at the moment it has a single bulb for each light 60/55 watt H4/p43T. Do you know if the wiring is ok to upgrade to a higher wattage bulbs and if it is can you recommend any

    Not long replaced mine for Philips X-Treme Vision +130% very happy with them over the standard bulbs that were in there, a much brighter white light output (3700k) that shines well into the distance...
