I've just upgraded my standard headlight bulbs on my Astra K. Mainbeam and dipped with Osram Night Breaker Lazer 150s. Mainbeam are H1's and Dipped H7s.
Bulbs are relatively easy to get to on both, once you've removed the plastic cover caps. See pics-

Undoing the bulb holder clips on the H1's. Replacing the new bulb.

Rear of the bulb holder on the H7s. You basically open up the clips and then remove the bulb holder with the bulb. Take off bulb connector. Fit new bulb and push clips together to secure bulb holder in place.
It took me around half an hour to change the 4 in total. Not a difficult job.

Standard bulbs.
I've just been out to test them. Verdict are they brighter than standard? Yes. At a guess I'd say around 50% brighter. Wouldn't go as far as saying they were 150% brighter than stock. Although it does state up to 150% brighter on the box. Are they worth changing? Yes.
If you are replacing them and expect them to be white, forget it......:ROFLMAO:They're closer to white than stock bulbs, but still yellow.

Nice One. The more guides the better. All gueswork with Torque Wrench settings, etc the now. Not even a Haynes manual for the post 2015 models.

The H7 dipped bulbs - that clip mentioned... you don't move the wire apart. There is a loop of wire above the bulb. Put your finger under it and slide it up about 8 or 10mm. The bulb will then come out easily.
After refitting the build put your finger on the wire loop and push it back down to hold the bulb in place.
