Default Powerful Headlights

I am not too happy with current headlights.

The bulbs are stock. The cover glass is old.

What are my options? If i am to upgrade the bulb which one should i go for?

How do i change them without going to repair shop?

Thanks

What year of car? You should be able to do yourself, but depends on year of car.

Don't know much about the brighter bulbs, there is also a HID system but this requires a ballast system. Might read posts at the Toyotanation website.

If plastic cover has become cloudy depending on the year of car you might be able to polish it.

If their plastic. My wifes 2006 scion Xa headlights looked like they were fogging up. I had them polished up at the body shop. Now they look brand new.

Get yourself LED headlights, they are brighter, last longer, are cooler and are less of a drain on the electrical system in older cars.

Here's a link to Toyota 1998 Camry Light Bulb Size Chart: 1998 Toyota Camry Car Light Bulb Size Chart

i have a 2000 camry, basically we have the same headlights. mine was fogged too. I polished it last year, but now its coming back. now i just ordered a new set of headlights. but, what i did with the bulbs, is changed my low beam 9006 bulb with an xenon 8k HID kit. I also tried the LED, dont get it! it looks nice, looks like an HID, but it doesnt work as a headlight. its works just like a park light. dont waste money on it, just go directly to HID. go for 6K or 8k.
