Driving lights-- any suggestions?

I just bought some Spyder smoked halo projector headlights, I love the way the halos light up but I'm kind of disappointed about the driving lights , they're way to dim! Does anyone have any suggestions on some good bright lights to install??

you're pretty much stuck...kinda the downside to running those types of lights. but if that's the kind of thing you like run it and enjoy it for what it is

AM reps if you're listening out there....
Please make us a projector kit that either comes with HIDs or can work with other HID kits, please?? Haha
Everybody wants em, you'd prolly make a killing off of it, just saying.
Oh and reasonably priced too if you could, none of that five hundred dollar s**t, haha.

AM doesn't make the parts...they just sell them. and honestly i wouldn't want a halo setup on my car...now something subtle like this retrofit and i'd be happy all day, but until then HIDs in my stockers lol. I do say if the OP or anyone likes halos though it's their car so more power to them.

I'd order a set in a heart beat, as long as it wasn't ridiculously priced
