Just be careful. Be EXTREMELY wary on claims of extra brightness. There
are basically two ways to make a light brighter: increase wattage, or make
the filment thinner or shorter to burn hotter, at the expense of usable
life. Problem is, the stock wiring and contacts on many of the US-style
lights can barely handle the stock 55/65W! A higher wattage could melt
connectors or start a fire.
Stay away from 'blue' bulbs. Any coating added to a bulb to give it a
bluer color actually REDUCES it's total light output.

You can use 80/90W bulbs or even 90/100W bulbs, but you have to use a
relay. (Either two singles or one double relay) Use Battery power to the
relay and then to the headlight. This way you use your lightswitch to
activate the relays only. Pretty much the same way you would hook up
driving and/or foglights. Good luck.
