The beauty of most led replacement bulbs is their ability to give equal illumination at any voltage between 6-32 volts and average power draw is less than half that of a halogen bulb. Plus you can get several different color renditions.
Many new cars, including BMW and MB, now come with them as standard equipment.

LEDs are the way to go. I just did mine and here is a video of the results. I was getting 12.1 volts at the fuse, but only 10.5v at the light. The light was stock 9006. The LEDs don’t care about the voltage drop... as long as there is at least 9v. So skip the relays and just go LED.

Headlightrevolution.com has both led and hid (xenon) options. We replaced our bulbs with hid. Very easy plug and play design. Read the differences between hid and led on the above website. Most aftermarket led do not project far enough, so we chose hid and are very pleased with the results

What most posters don't seem to realize is the OP can't just replace the bulbs. He has to replace the whole headlamp assembly. You can't just replace the bulb on a 4" x 6" glass headlight.

Going to Halogen is a good recommendation , checking the voltage at the back of the lamp is fine advice. Doing the relay modification if the voltage is low is a great fix. Bare in mind headlamp light power is governed by US Government Highway Standards, You are restricted to the maximum watts per headlamp. Adding auxiliary lamps is ok if directed properly . Somebody suggested aiming headlamps 'hot spot' 30 feet to the ground in front of your rig , dumb suggestion. After changing forward lamps find a building with a level area in front of a wall to shine your lights, keep back 25 to 35 feet and shine the lights on the wall, measure the height of the lamps and measure the height of the hot spot on the wall, adjust so the hot spot is slightly lower a few inches. Also aim them slightly to the right.

Thanks Clifford. I was out pointing them at a brick wall this evening and wasn't exactly sure how to set them up. I appreciate the advice and will be doing this tomorrow night.

So far so good.... they are brighter than before!
