Could someone help me please (lights)

  Clio 1.2
I have got a Dynamique Clio and I do alot of night time driving and the normal headlights were really poor that I honestly did not feel safe down the back roads. I went on to purchase a HID kit (8000k) and the man told me it was white and it was a horrible bright blue and worse than before.

Could someone help me on what to get? I want every bulb upgraded for the brightest output.. I dont care what they cost aslong as they are not a horrible blue colour.

Bin the HID kit, they are pants and illegal.

Get xenon headlights from a 172/182 or some decent bulbs like ring automotive 120% or osram night breakers

8000k is very blue. 4300k is standard xenon bulb colour. When I see someone with an HID kit that blinds me I blind them straight back.

Will the whole 172 unit fit straight in then? I'm new to all this but someone told me they have projector lights?

I would upgrade to some good bulbs along the lines of Osram Nightbreakers in the standard headlights or fork out and buy some 172/182 xenon head lights at around £200 which is a plug and play and are 100 times better IMO

First question is what state are your headlight glasses /covers in ? if they are fogged up this will cause poor light
  172RS, 320i, Forte
even stock clio bulbs are not that bad, in your shoes i'd check first the following points:

1- head lights glass is it crystal clear or went yellow and scratched
2- your reflectors are still bright or became rusty
3- is there any water vapour or fog inside your headlights
4- your headlights are properly aimed or aimed up or down a bit and needs re-aiming
5- your bulbs go for night breakers 4300k or 5000k

if all this is ok you will have sufficient lights :)
