Head-light Bulbs

Have just had my first serious night driving experience, it wasn't pleasant!
Would welcome advice on best bulbs for up-grade please.

these get good reviews, personally I've always really liked PIAA bulbs, but they do cost a bit...

Like the idea of the Night Breakers, mentioned them to my (small traditional) local garage and he tells me they might not pass the MOT because of "blue light" ???

The MOT states that forward light must be white/yellow iirc. Those night breakers don't have blue light, just a blueish tinge.

Thanks Brunty (I did say it was a small traditional garage...the gas lighting should have warned me!!)
