What kind of lights?
I have a 02 GT with all the options. I am looking to get bright lights, like the GTS. Bright white or blue, what brands are out there, easy to install. Advice anyone.

if you want to spend a nice amount of money for some SUPER bright lights...then buy HID's...

if you want something way cheaper but MUCH brighter than stock...MTEC bulbs or PIAA bulbs.

there is a law that non DOT approved are illegal...

like they said, it really comes down to what you want to spend. If you have some cash, everything is second best to HID. If you don't have that kind of cash, PIAA or MTECS (I've heard) are good. I have PIAA and I'm very happy with them.

Just out of curiosity, I've never changed headlight blubs, is it an easy / quick process? Is it possible to screw something up easily?

I read the install section on how to replace the bulbs, but it's difficult to imagine without pictures. Then again, owners manual might have pictures (since there was a page reference), but I haven't checked yet.
