My 95 MR headlights are just terrible. I wasnt expecting the lights to be this bad. I know there are H4 conversions but how reliable are these mods and I heard of the headlight wires getting fried up...

Also, I would like to put HID but this is an expensive and hard project I suppose. It would look cool tho... I end up driving with my high beams on and other drivers dont mind. They think that those are lo beams from my car.

Which one of these would u recomend

You could just pick up a pair of sealed beam Sylvania Silverstars, they are AMAZING.

So much more light coverage than the stock headlamps, and i love the look/color. Cheap too compared to the H4 conversion + bulbs, but the H4's are a wee bit better.

The Sylvania sealed beams are nice as well. The only thing to consider is, they are quite expensive (relatively speaking) when you need to replace them. With the H4 conversion, you just need to buy H4 bulbs, which can be cheap/expensive depending on what you buy.

Short of HID, the H4 glass made by Valeo/Cibie are KILLER.

I have these on two of my cars, and have gotten them for some friends as well. They are E-code (Euro) pattern, which is a VERY hard cutoff. (You can pull up behind a minivan and see that the cutoff line is so sharp you don't even put light into the rear window.)

Less than $50 each, and you simply can't buy a better glass. And no, don't even think Hella, they aren't even in the same class.

The next thing you need is good lamps. The way to NOT fry your harness or light switch is to stay with stock wattages. About the best lamp out there is a "Xenon-enhanced" lamp. Get the 50% enhanced variety and you will be simply astonished at the light output. I think lamps are about $15 each.
