You have to understand that putting these bulbs in isn't just a grab and stick in affair. They won't last if touched with bare hands. Wear gloves and they should be good for at least 1 year.

Been using Osram Nightbreakers for a while now.

However, the Laser versions are no better than the Unlimited versions in real world use so go for the Unlimited as they are cheaper (and last longer)

He's generally quite fond of the chunky Merc W204 shape. I've previously had a C220 W203 and found the diesel engine noisy and grumbly so I guess the 1.6 would be more refined.
