In reply to your question of a better headlight bulb replacement, I previously researched this matter thoroughly.
The OEM bulbs in my SL500 were horrible.... they would barely illuminate the road at night.
After all my research, I chose the PIAA Xtreme White Plus bulbs. After replacing them, I also re-aimed my headlights. The PIAAs made a HUGE difference!!
No need to go to an H.I.D. conversion kit, after replacing and re-aiming with the PIAAs.
There is so much technology to bulb manufacturer, e.g. How Tightly the Filament is Wound, Blend of Gases Used, Type of Coatings, etc. PIAA's technology is excellent.
You may also want to check out PIAA's new line of bulbs, called Night-Tech Bulbs
Hope this helps.
