The best upgrade is to go to the Euro lights (try with 100W bulbs.The whole package is about $489 for both sides. You will need to upgrade the wiring and change connectors however. Next best is the projector lights, which you probably already have. Last choice is the non projector lights which I had (92 535i) and changed to the projector units with 65W lows, which work OK. Otherwise you are stuck in terms of upgrades. You can add driving lights to the car, which I am thinking about. This would be separate units with their own wiring and switch. I will probably go with one of the smaller projector units now available, like the PIAA, but the PIAA are REALLY expensive and not worth it IMO.I will probably go with a knockoff (Hella sells one now). The lights are really small and would look OK under the bumper on either side of the front license plate bracket. Jon
