Mine have arrived and I’ve fitted them.
They do seem a lot brighter and whiter
I’m looking forward to seeing what they are like on the country lanes later when I pick Mrs para up from work.

Great improvement
There a lot whiter, brighter and crisper
They also seem to illuminate the grass verges at the sides of the road a lot better.

So far so good now let’s see how long they last.

Well they clearly look whiter than my yellow candles!
Do let us know how you get on at night; I may well follow suit

Interesting that you say they light the verges better. I find I'm having to put my front fogs on to light the verges up.
The front fogs make a big improvement but might be annoying to other road users when it isnt foggy (although nobody has ever flashed their lights at me in frustration), so these might well be the answer.
I see you dont have the front fog-lamps on yours - you really ought to get some - they are quite effective in fog!

If it isnt a rude question - how much were they and from where?

I paid £18.61 from euro car parts max.

I wouldn’t mind some front fogs for mine
As fog is something we get a fair bit of here
I’m led to believe all the wiring is already in place and it’s just the fogs and a switch I will need ?

The fog around my area in the Cotswolds is all through the winter and there are some particularly bad areas I have to drive through (when nowhere else seems to be foggy!) So I'm grateful for the front fogs (and the rear)

Euro Car Parts.... Thank you :)

Paradox, I got a set of the Nightbreakers from the same supplier as yours (took a while though).

They have definitely improved the amount of light thrown out to the ditch each side - I'm very impressed by that; I no longer feel compelled to put the fogs on now, but I have mixed feelings about them when on main beam.
On full beam they aren't quite as "white" as I was expecting - more greyish but they do seem to project further than the bulbs that I removed so I would say there is an overall improvement that was worth the money.

My main gripe with the Jimny headlight projected 'pattern' is that it seems to have a shadow that goes right across the road - its noticeable when you adjust the beams up/down.
Out of all the cars I've owned, the SAAB had the best headlamps and before that, many years ago, my humble Citroen 2CV (I remember thinking if I ever build a kit-car - the 2CV lamps would be what I would choose!)
