Halegen Headlight Upgrade

Is it possible to upgrade my halegen lights on my 325i? I have seen aftermarket parts but the reviews are horrible. Does anyone have a solution?

Sell the car and buy one with the factory HIDs....

Second option is to buy the genuine BMW factory HIDs and install them. You're gonna be looking at $1400 plus a 3 hour DIY install.

All those eBay HID/LED headlights are garbage. $450-$500 for a set, won't last you a year.

The cheapest option to have brighter/whiter light is to upgrade to the brightest halogen bulbs available:

-Philips xtreme vision H7 (450 hour life) (I use these, very good)
-Sylvania Silverstar Ultra H7 (250 Hour life)
- Philips racing vision H7 (250 hour life) (These are the newest on the market, little brighter than the xtreme vision)

Depending on your budget and skill level, you could retrofit your headlights with HID Projectors. The morimoto mini H1 would fit in the h7 bulb socket. You would need to bake open the headlights to install the projectors, but the light output would be vastly better. The morimoto mini d2s would be an even better option, but harder to install.
