Has anyone with a Landcruiser 100 series fitted “Phillips Vision Plus” globes, and is any wiring upgrade needed, or can you just put them straight into the light?

I don't have a Cruiser, but I have used these globes in my previous vehicle, a Holden Jackaroo which had pretty ordinary lights.
No wiring upgrade is necessary as the current draw is the same as your current globes, (same wattage) so they are a straight swap for your existing ones.

And if you upgrade the wiring you will get better performance again.

Better to use Phillips "Blue Vision", I use these in all my vehicles, much better "white light" and no upgrade to wiring required.

Have used "Blue Vision" or now called "White Vision" in all Headlights including Driving Lamps.
I'm in the trade and can purchase direct but you could try Repco, Supercheap or on Ebay.
Don't get sold on Narva bulbs as they are nowhere near as good. Remember most car manufacturers only use Philips or Osram branded globes as they are the best quality. (...what you pay for is what you get)

I have those globes in my car and really their performance is no different to "normal" halogen globes - in reality they are not noticeably "whiter" or "bluer" that normal halogens.

The ones I have are supposed to be 4200k and are supposed to be a close match to the 4300K HID globes I have in my low beam but the halogens are much yellower than 4200K probably closer to 3500K.

Autobarn usually also have a selection.

I have Repco and Narva brands fitted on high and low beam and they make a worthwhile difference.

I have Osrum "Night Breaker " (I think they are called) in my headlights. Came as a direct replacement to the existing lamp (high and low beam combined in one glass housing).
Much brighter and whiter light for the same wattage,
I got them a couple of years ago from England via Ebay.
Just have to keep the plastic lens on the headlight housing from yellowing all the time now to take full advantage of these new globes. (polish them up every now and again to remove the UV degradation of the lens.)
