    Try pepboys, Autozone or what ever is in your area. You can get brighter Halogens that will fit. They advertize 50% Brighter. You can also get some that provide "Blue Light"

    Get a pair of Hella, IPF or Cibie E-code headlights, they take a H-4 bulb, unless you upgrade the wiring harness stick with the standard 55/60 watt bulbs. These lights are a BIG improvment. If you really want some nice lights, upgrade the lights, the harness(can buy a premade harness) and run 80/100 watt bulbs.........this is what I run and I LOVE em.

    I prefer the IPF over the Hella but just a bit not a lot.

    I've been using the Hella 7inch lense housing with a H4 bulb, which is available in different wattages including an "off road only" version. I've found the Hella's to be a huge improvment in visability over the stockers as light is much more natural with a wider spread- less yellow than sealed beam. I also like the fact the the bulb can be bought independent of the lense- better light, less waist and cheeper in the long run. Checker should have Em or SOR also keeps them in stock. Cheers

    I did the Hella H4 Vision Plus upgrade and it helps a lot. Now I plan on upgrading the harness with a relay so I can get the max out of the 55/60 bulbs.
