Headlights

I've noticed that the headlights are dimmer than me in an algebra class. What is the cheapest / fastest / easiest / most effective upgrade?

My 2 kits are from here http://www.automotivelightstore.com/...on=Custom&ID=1 but I got a good discount.

If anything you can run cheap ebay HID kits, they work perfectly fine. Just make sure its a reputable seller who offers a 1 year warranty at least.

I installed mine. They look great. I accidentally got the wrong bulbs so I now have no high beams. The kit is $50 plus $75 for the hi/lo beams. I got the 5000k kit
