Same here Eddie, liked the yellow lights on my old BMW so did the same on the XM, purely for looks, (it's more fitting with the XM being French though) hardly ever find myself driving on unlit country roads at night so dont need super bright high performance lights.
It's a mod that can very easily be reversed.
Matthew, i looked at yellow H1's on E-Bay, they didn't look yellow enough to me so i used the amber tint paint (pictured previously) bought off E-bay on the main beam bulbs, with this you can make them as yellow as you like by giving them a few coats (i gave mine two coats), this is cheaper than buying new bulbs (the bottle of paint was a fiver), works fine, bulbs haven't blown, and can be reversed (yellow laquer cleaned off with white spirit)
Also used the yellow tint paint on the dipped beam lenses (one coat on the smooth side) and still have plenty left.
