If the ignition is on keep turning the key one position more towards off. there will be a position where the key switch will be off and the when isn't locked and trans is in neutral.
This position won't run the battery down unless your brake lights are doing it then a key removal won't help that.
As far as your headlights go, upgrade to what?? in what way? do your old ones have fogged up lenses? If they are in good shape they are adequate lights most of the time.
with good lenses you could get some better bulbs like Sylvainia Silverstar replacement bulbs or buy a set of good quality aux lights and mount them on the front.
Not i said good quality lights. if you have ever had a good set you will know the difference.
Your factory headlights might and anything you add will need the beam adjusted.
And whatever you do do NOT "upgrade" to a "HID bulb kit" that fits in your stock headlight housing. Those housings are not made for that.
