Could you give me a few ideas on purchasing brighter headlights for my 95 se.

I heard people talking about Hella 100w headlights, and also Sylvania Cool Blues.

Which bulbs produce a brighter light and better pattern?
Also I would like to keep the cost down, are these easy to replace?

Thanks for any advice you may provide..... Great Forum!

First off, if this question is about a 1995 SE, then it shouldn't be in the 1987 to 1991 forum (honest mistake I suppose!!!!)

There are many kinds of replacement headlight bulbs out there. I personally run Piaa Xtreme White Plus low beams, but these are a little more spendy. Others are using Sylvania Silverstars, Sylvania Cool Blues, Piaa Super Whites, Matrix, and actual H.I.D. kits (Smellbird).

From what I have found replacing just the bulb doesn't make the WORLD of difference. I was actually way more impressed by upgrading my factory fog lights with Blazer driving lights. These produce the brighter light and better pattern that you are looking for, at a reasonable price. I bought mine at Checker Auto for around $75, but I think you can get them off of Club GP for $59.99.

There'* my thoughts based on my experience!
Good Luck

*EDITED* The headlight bulbs are simple to replace, but if you're looking to upgrade the fog housing, a little more time is involved!*EDITED*
