E-codes are a great upgrade. Expect to pay $45-$50 each for the lamps. The nice thing is though that the bulb in replaceable so if it burns out you just pop in a new one for $10-$15 and keep the housing/reflector. Take the time to correctly aim the E-codes. If they are not aimed correctly you won't get the full benefit of their superior beam pattern, you will likely blind other drivers and possibly attract the attention of the local constabulary. Follow this thread on aiming.... Is there a Euro Headlight aiming procedure? I would recommend staying with the standard 60/55 watt bulbs with stock wiring. They work fine that way.
