This link will let you identify which bulbs you will need.....

http://vivavitara.forumotion.co.uk/t112-headlight-bulbs

Some people have had varying experiences with the LED headlight bulbs, some saying it is better yet others returning to the original bulbs

Other bulbs are available but this is what I currently have fitted.....

Headlight HB3

Sidelight W5W

Foglight H11

The W5W link is for a 10 pack of LED bulbs but these can be used to improve your interior lighting....

I am sorry but I must disagree, I fitted the exact same head and fog light bulbs and found them to be totally useless for driving but agree that they do look good when parked.
I do a lot of fairly fast driving on rural roads using main beam whenever possible which is probably about 80% of the time.
I have now reverted to the original bulbs which although not perfect I think are better for driving than the conversion.
However this is only MY opinion.

With what you experienced GS I did out of interest revert to the oe bulbs, like yourself I drive 80% rural so decent lighting is a must

I personally could not see a thing compared to the LED's previously fitted but like you say that is MY personal opinion

I do have some pictures on my camera at home showing both LED and OE bulbs on local single track road, will try and upload them later just out of interest

A good option are Osram Unlimited  Nightbreakers, Excellent brightness and range for the main beam.
I have these as side lights also excellent

Can these be fitted as either main beam or side lights?
Are they bright?
As I think I might change mine over.

What about the indicator lights mine have a orange glow around them at the moment?

They would be for side light only, If you want to get rid of the orange indicator lamps, check this post out

As an alternative to the standard halogen bulbs or LED kits, I opted for the Osram Cool Blue Intense bulbs. It's a whiter light than the standard halogen.

And as an alternative to the orange front indicator bulbs...PY21W Philips Silver Vision
