Yes, properly aligning will give the best immediate results with little time investment. What I was trying to say in my other post wasn't directed at that though.
Fogged housings or no fogged housings, better bulbs in the stock housings will only do so much. The refraction pattern only throws so much light onto the road as a percentage of the output of the lamp. The rest is scattered left, right, and up. Let's not forget that a brighter bulb increases the intensity of those scattered rays, which directly translated to more light into the eyes of oncoming drivers. You or I being able to see better at the expense of everyone else seeing worse isn't exactly the best tradeoff in the interests of overall after-sunset safety.
Beyond a relay harness and properly aligned housings, if you want more light on the road, you need a brighter bulb and something to re-focus that energy properly. = Projectors.
