Headlights
 
I noticed that one of my headlights is darker than the other, upon closer inspection it seems that one is the OEM while the other is a Sylvania. Regardless I want new pair headlights and was looking at these.

I dont really want to just buy one headlight since it will look new vs the other old one so I found these on ebay.

You'll be very happy with the improvement from any brand-name Ecode H4 housing - Bosch, Hella, IPF, Cibie... and as long as you get stock-wattage bulbs there's nothing else you have to do, although a wiring harness kit will improve them even more.

What's the stock wattage of our bulbs?

Also what is this wiring harness you speak of?

I bought a pair of those "Ebay" headlights. I like 'em! They're a lot brighter than the OEMs.

55/60w. Something like this - Painless Performance: H-4 Headlight Relay Conversion Harness

You can buy them on ebay, make your own, or do like I did and get the IPF/ARB harness because I was also buying IPF lenses and bulbs. Essentially, you wire one end of it to your battery terminals, and the other end plugs in between your existing headlight wiring and the lights themselves - no splicing, soldering or anything like that, it's truly plug and play. That way the current is actually traveling directly from the battery to your headlights, rather than going through the headlight switch first and losing a couple of volts. If you go to more powerful bulbs, the additional draw through the switch can cause it to fail if you don't use relays.
