I live in a very dark area in Tennessee I have tried a led which were ok but we're horrible in rain so I put in Sylvania ultras still not the best light is more yellow. My focus is a base model and I m just trying to have better visability without breaking the bank any help would be appreciated

the headlight buckets arent doing you any favors, reflector housings wont really make much of a difference in light between bulbs. Some might be a bit brighter but nothing dramatic. I would just stick to midrange bulbs, replace them in pairs.

How are you headlights looking, still clear? If not a polish might make the output better. Lots of kits you can use with drill to polish them clear.

If you want a real improvement, i would say retrofit hid/projector into your housing. Bit of work and not exactly cheap but results will be far better than any bulb swap.

Like said above, 1st would be to make sure your housings are clear & not yellowed,ect. After researching out different hid kits yrs ago, I decided to stick w/ regular bulbs. I tried other brands that I had to order & then after having one after another burn out, I went w/ a common easy to get Sylvania ZXE's which works great for me.

I use Philips CrystalVision. Its a whiter light but not a brighter light. Unless you upgrade the lenses, just stick with OEM halogen and clean your housings best you can.
