    Default Headlight bulb replacement?

    I want my lights brighter a little. I just want to replace the bulb, no kits. Iím not looking to spend a lot of money. Around $50 for both. There are too many to choose from. I was planning on going to auto zone. What is the best bulb?
    FYI, my lights are not burned out just want brighter. Thank you.

    Ive bought stuff from ddmtuning too, but that is an HID kit. if you are just looking for bulbs and want to get them at say an autozone etc the sylvania silverstars or the new crystal visions will give you more lumens than stock. they arent the super cheap but still should be in that price range you were looking for.

    See surreal's hid right up and then I explain the theory at the end of the post. HIDs are great just not great for vehicles

    Silverstars definitely, Just remember they don't last as long as the stock bulbs but they are brighter and legal. I really like my 6000K HIDs and you can get them cheap but do your research, some are cheap and some are inexpensive. I went with the Philips but they are pricey. 6000K don't get the wrong attention.

    I put the piaa bulbs in mine. They are very white (no blue at all). They are considerably brighter and come with a one year replacement warranty. They run about the same price as the bulbs at autozone
