Headlights

Has anyone ordered any aftermarket lights that are worth anything??
I ordered a LED conversion kit from American Muscle, my stock halogens were better!!
So then I tried a 35 watt Canbus HID, from Protuninglab, absolutely horrible!!
Anybody have anything out there that actually helps see better at night than the stock headlights?
I haven't thought about the projector types because I really like the stock big headlight look.

Welcome to the world of aftermarket headlights... Stock or get a legit retrofit with Morimoto projectors. I'd leave the stockers and save your money. There is no visibility issue with the stockers and good OEM/Philips bulbs.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.

About 2 days after buying my 2012 back in 2013 I raised the beam one complete turn of the adjustment screw and was able to see further down the road without affecting oncoming traffic.

Retrofit. Just make sure your high beams both work. One of mine stopped after couple months. Then I did theretrofitsource's fix which worked for about a week =[ wasnt worth it for me to take everything apart for something I dont use much. Wasnt too bad to do it on my own. Just sucks when a halo or something goes out and you need to pull it apart.

Stock halogen 11-12 housing. Theretrofitsource d2s, mini kit i believe(also think they changed the naming). I was able to also switch out the turn signal cover out for clear ones which I vht'd slightly. Whole inside is blacked out so when they are off it kinda gives a tinted lens look but without the reduced lighting
