Want Brighter headlights on 2012 Silverado

I installed a headlight booster kit in my 02 Silverado . 80 watt lows & 100 watt highs. All 4 lights on at high beam. I sold the 02 and I'm looking for brighter headlights for my 2012 Silverado, but can't seem to find anything. I don't want those cheapo blue replacement bulbs. Any ideas?

I purchased some for my 07 silverado from carhidkits.com after my buddy had recommended them to me and have fairly satisfied with them. I ordered the 6000K kit for $80 and it came with a ballast for each light and all harnesses necessary for installation. They are a good white color and not that trashy blue stuff. I only got the low beam kit, but they sell kits for your high beams and fogs if you want them to all match in color. Be careful to order only 1 kit as it has both bulbs in it. (learned that the hard way). Been meaning to aim my lights down as i get brighted by everyone when i'm on 2 lane highways.

Sorry for the giant pic, still learning all this photobucket stuff

Just be aware that putting HID lights into a vehicle that was not equipped with them OEM is illegal and you can get ticketed. It all depends on how strict the law is in your part of the country.

It's easily seen from the picture above why they are illegal in many States /Provinces.
