    Does any one has gone thru a replacement process of the OEM healight bulbs with a more powerful (non HID) -brighter- bulb? If possible, I like to know about what I should take care of before, during and after the replacement of them, a long time ago I did replace my fog light bulbs for yellow ones but that I think was an easy task, my concern is with light alignment primarily.

    Your help will be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Regards.

    Nothing will brighter than HID.
    It is not expensive in this day, with the HI/LOW HID i will say around 80.00

    I meant to ask, what will be the DO's and DON'Ts of replacing the OEM headlights bulbs with another bulb (brighter).

    Thanks,
    Regards.

    Silverstars are good, but don't last long at all. Take the plunge and get some HID's.
