As all others have said, stay OEM with black SVT's, Machs, or ST170's, if you really want aftermarket, Dynabeams are the best option
How can you spend that much money and not go HID though? Seems pointless to me, all halogens suck (in my experience).

honestly, haveing had a few sets of aftermarket and ebay lights, the OEM ones, even though they are plain, have some of the best light output and beam pattern.

if you can spare the cash for them, get the OEM "Mach" HID. they really are that good. best $300 i spent

Most if not all OEM parts are better most of the time.

Call me cheap, but I bought 2 pairs of Sylvania XV Xtravision Halogen 9007 lamps from Amazon.com, for a total of $35 including shipping, and I cannot believe how well they light up the road in front of me on dark mornings and evenings during my commute - and I have a spare pair of lamps if replacements are needed.

I do not understand why people pay hundreds of dollars for HEADLIGHTS that have a funny color and don't do anything more that what I have for $17.50 per pair. The goofy colored headlights are a distractions to other drivers and a giant source of income for the manufacturers who are able to sell them to the naive consumers willing to buy them for inflated prices.

Does anyone really believe a set of HEADLIGHTS is worth $500 or more? If so, you have my sincerest symphathies. Spend your money on something that really matters!! Family and friends!

Thought of the day: Do not love anything that cannot love you in return.

just my 2 cents on this...

OP asked for quality aftermarket... Dynabeams are that...

Otherwise op find some used Machs, or st-170's.
