Headlight bulb replacement for 1995 m3

Is there anybody out there that can help me what is the brightest/best bulb replacement for my M3. I do not want any conversion kit just a straight bulb replacement.

You'll need H1s for the fogs, 9006s for the low beams, and 9005s for the high beams.

For brightness and visibility I'd run a bulb like the Ziza "Pure Yellow" in my fog lamps, the yellow color will help cut any fog on the road an maximize the lighting of the road. You can find these bulbs for your fog lights HERE.

For the low beams, personally I run the Ziza Super Whites found HERE. They put out a very natural bright clean light.

Any pictures of it on the street besides pictures of the actual bulbs?

Currently I only have install shots from one of our VWs. They are close ups of the headlight showing the color more than the light output.

Example:
