If you have the dough the best possible lightin for night is direct AE ring replacement and HID fogs. I went from stock to this setup and OMG at night the roads are clear as day. So much more light then before. You will not notice much difference if you do the bulb replacement other than looks. It probably will be a drop brighter than he OEM bulb, but for what your looking for as more lighting for nightime driving, the gain is marginal at best.
