    Basically you won't find anything like this.

    Most aftermarket headlights wont even be legal.
    They will always need aiming.
    To get "bright", you will need LED or HID, both of which require at least one extra connection.
    You will be looking to pay around 200 a side for the headlights. And even with 200, you wont get bright, legal or aimed correctly.

    Your best bet is to just pay an audio shop for HIDs and tell them to aim it.

    Take a look at the H11 to H9 link in my signature below. There is a video (or link) at the end of the thread by Mediahound which details what simple mods need to be done to the H9 bulbs to get them to fit in the headlight housing and H11 connector.

    Once you modify the H9 bulbs, they will plug right in. You will get approximately 50% more light with this mod. I've been driving around with this mod for over 18 months on both vehicles.

    No extra wiring, no ballasts to fail, and quality Osram or Philips bulbs cost about $20 a pair. Get name brand bulbs with clear capsules, don't get bulbs with blue capsules.
