I ran with 9007's in the 200 for a while before making the switch to euros.  The 9007 are a cheap, easy upgrade.  With the 9007's, light output was "acceptable" if I also ran with a set of Hella Aux low beams (5kcstq) or PIAA 1200's (200q20V).  The euros are still a 1000% improvement.

PS - Car is still really, really hard to start when cold.  I just got back from a week in Amsterdam, and getting the car to start this morning was a chore.  <cough> <sputter> <die>  Repeat over and over again.  When it finally catches, it sounds like it is running on 2-3 cylinders at best.  After a 20 or so seconds, everything smooths out and is happy.  Car will start just fine after that, until it sits for 8+ hours.
