Default Headlights

The misses is complaining about the headlights not very bright. What are the best mods out there to improve this on a 2005 407sw? She has also moaned that the reverse lights are not very bright either but I think headlights are more important. Any help would be great.

Have you checked your headlight plastic cover it can get blurish outside with time by the sun or inside from the bulb with poor quality and weak uv -filter.

My o/s headlight plastic lense is a bit tarnished I would say. Not sure there is anything I can do about that except to replace the units. Or is there?

My bulbs are H1 for dipped beam.

If you have projector type (fish eye lens) headlights, these are great:

Ignore the idiot review at the bottom of the description.
