H7 (Halogen Bulb Suggestions)

Hello all:

Yeah, I'm sure this topic is covered all the time. But I'm looking for your personal opinions on the subject.

2001 330i Sedan Black
Stock Halogen Headlamps
Clear Corner & Sidemarker lights
Eagle Eye LED tail lights

What would be the best headlight h7 bulb option to produce bright/clear (NOT yellow...more white/blue than yellow) for my e46? Looking for a simple bulb plug-and-play option...not and upgrade to the headlight housing/unit.

Thank you all very much!!!

Ive looked at:
Eurodezigns H7 8500
PIAA

we put some of these on our truck.

the phillips crystal vision ultra. it's probably the only halogen bulb that i will run as a low beam. the light output is very very good. and the color is pure white. no yellow. and no blue that looks like the fake HID crap.

yes i know the bulbs have a slight blue tint on the glass, but i do not believe this hinders light output onto the road. they are great bulbs and the only ones i've ever seen that are actually pure white.

My suggestion is stock. What the poster above me posted which is stock style, yellow light, but effective for high beam use.
