do you mean putting in a better bulb in your halogen headlamp assembly? if so, just pick the bulbs you want and take it somewhere.

if you mean upgrading to something other than halogen in said assembly and you could possibly be asking for trouble, unless you are handy and know what you're doing.

I bought the BMW branded High Performance bulbs (basically rebranded Sylvania bulbs if I remember right) and had the dealer install them; they are indeed brighter. I also adjusted the headlights as they were too low and it did help a lot. Unless you can take the front tires off it's a horrific job to attempt. I've read other threads about how to do it but the best route is to remove the front wheels so you can see what you are doing. I do have LED bulbs to try out and now that I have some better idea of what to do to accomplish this on my own.
