Do a search on Euro headlights or headlamps. Way better at stock wattage levels than more powerful bulbs for the US spec headlights.

if your car is a 'keeper' you should have euro lights so you can SEE at night.

the u.s. lights are so poor, imo they are almost dangerous. the beam pattern is awful.

go to

read this. also do a search on 'euro' lights.

your choices are numerous.

they are the best money i have ever spent on ANY car.
