Default Headlights, I want MOAR POWER!

I'm looking for a set of replacement bulbs for my 100. I went with the Hella Optilux white H4 bulbs and I love the color but the actual light on the road isn't even as bright as stock.

So what's out there without breaking the bank? I want plug and play.

I went with a cheapo HID kit from ebay, like this one
http://www.ebay.com/itm/9006-9005-HI...ZqL0NA&vxp=mtr

It's actually very bright... have put these on other cars and been disappointed, but the 100 lens seems to be ok for these, I really like them. totally worth $30.

If I were to do it again I'd replicate smakee's setup.. he's running the Depot lenses, and I think LED's. He was behind me on the night run for a while, and I liked what I saw. But likely another decimal point on the cost..

Check out IPF Super Low Beam bulbs. I run them in both pick-ups. Much better beam spread than any other H4 I have used. Good color too. And made in Japan!

I have used kits from DDM tuning as they are only a little more expensive ($10-15) but have a lifetime warranty and offer 4500k which are very bright without the extra hue of blue most of the kits seem to have.
