Default need brighter headlights

Is there a replacement headlight that would fit in the existing frame that would be brighter then my original factory ones?

Before replacing your headlights, check the voltage at the actual headlight while they are on.

If your voltage is low (12v or less with engine on), you would benefit greatly by installing a Bosch relay to provide higher voltage to the headlights. Instructions for the retrofit are here in the forums.

But they won't help much if the voltage is low.

Here's the link. Found it at the bottom of the page where Finn said it would be. Guess it was worth going to RATS....
