How can I upgrade my headlights?

I own a 2019 Nissan Micra. The headlights have always been poor and as my eyesight is not as good nowadays can you recommend a brighter bulb more or less like an LED light? I would appreciate what options I have and at what cost.

We would recommend Osram Night Breakers or Phillips RacingVision bulb upgrades. If you go for other brands it's vital to make sure they are made for road use and not 'off-road only' as some bulbs sold by well-known motor factors sometimes turn out to be unsuitable for road use.
