Whatever you do, if it's the car in your stats, don't put anything with a higher wattage than stock in the headlights, you will melt them.

A HID conversion would be a good way to go. Otherwise get some +50% more light but std wattage globes.

Cheers

get a nice set of decent spotties, not the crap cheaps ones, decent ones!!

Go to a 4x4 shop and get some spot lights (long thow of light) as opposed to driving lights (broad beams)... A good decent set of spot lights will see you spotting roo's from a kay away and blind everything in its path.....

Long throw lights are also known as pencil beam.

many many moons ago a mate of mine had a VF Valiant coupe and lurking behind the grill were 2 7" Cibie Super Oscars.... 130 watt globes and they turned night into day...

We were out late one night stuff arrsing around and someone cut him off... never seen a car weave so much before..... LOL bet that driver never did that again.....
