three letters H I D  !!!! The only way to go. More light output less electrical draw! Fairly easy install.

The cheapie Xeon H4 bulbs are really dang good. Twenty buck or less a pair, they have a nice brite white light. I replaced the 'city bulbs' with a white light that matches the H4s output too. If you are on a tight budget of course.

+1 on the A&R kit. includes a combined relay harness. one relay for both bulbs on a C14. I have been quite pleased with mine. Light is visible on the backs of cars even during the daylight!

+1000   HID.

If you really want bulbs, I have a set of brand new PIAA's that I won in a drawing.  Used them for a few weeks...they are brighter than most, but nothing compared to HID.

$50 will get you the set if you want them.  I paid $100 (gift cert) for them...
