There arent many options unless you want to swap out your whole housing. You can upgrade your angel eyes. What type of angel eyes do you own? Do they use LED's?

For basic non-HID lighting you could go with Sylvania Silverstar bulbs. They cost about $40 for the pair adn you cna buy them at most stores like Pep Boys.

You could add HID's to your car by visiting www.jlevisw.com. I would stay under 6000K because these give the best light output and still look great.

Visit JLevi's website, it has all your lighting needs from fogs to corners to tails to reverse bulbs.

Do you already have clears all around (corners, side markers, tails)? Those improve the look by a lot IMO.

You can actually buy silverstars on Amazon for list price and free shipping. I got tired of going to Autozones and Trak Autos and Napas and walmart looking for h1's.

Your car looks pretty tight already. You could get some headlight brows. That would look pretty cool.

bob, what is your obsession with the eyebrows...
to be honest, silver stars arnt the best in output, i don't know what the fuss is all about...

if your serious about the light output, just buy some HIDs!
