I don't know about bulb's, But if you need more light you can try "The Bright Box" from Geno's Garage(in sponser section)

It turns on the Brights and Normal lights at the same time. Without burning out your Mulit Function Switch.

you can go replacement bulbs but i doubt you will get the results you are looking for, i would replace the entire assembly like willypscustoms did, then they will be really bright. the stock headlights just cant do what a good set of clear HID's will.

I got the newest silverstars, like $50 a set., I noticed brighter and whiter light. DOT is strict + yearly inspection they check if they are legal. The newest silverstars I think aare a little brighter then the predecessor, not alot.

I love my HIDs. I have them in with the factory housing. Works great and get people flashing me all the time because they are so bringt. They are set correctly too by the way.
