Get some hellas and convert them with an HID kit, cheapest and brightest output.

I'll tell ya right now, the light output is close to pathetic. I have those behind my Satoshi. Paid $20 a light. Yes I bought them new. For looks they are fine. For lighting.. Well the flash on my phone gives off more light... IMO

I'm not sure about the glare I usually don't drive toward myself but I'm sure they are blindingly bright Lol. Distance is great the way I have them adjusted they are just above the cut off of my projectors I would say they throw light a good 250-300 yards. Even with my FX-R projectors on high the Hellas throw light further.
