Default Headlamp Replacement help

Hey Guys, It's been awhile, but now I'm back with another batch of mantinance and custom upgrade post.

Well I finally took the plunge and ordered some replacement Headlamps

Amazon.com: Left Driver Side Headlight Headlamp 01-05 Chrysler Pt Cruiser Ptcruiser 01 02 03 04 05 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 Head Light Lamp Lights Lamps: Automotive

they were 94 each with free shipping

Now does anyone have advice on installing them?
has anyone replaced and or adjusted replacements?

and since I have them out I thought about replacing the bulbs with some upgrades...any suggestions?

can't really afford HID (even though I would really like them)
Maybe some SilverStars? I do alot of night driving on long roads...

any help or advice would be welcome
Thanks
~Cueball

I just ordered a set of Euro Effects HID conversions for my low beams 9006xs...

They were $149 shipped... I dont have them yet... but... I can't wait!

I also ordered a set of silver star ultra's 9005XS for the high beams and standard 9006 for the fog lights... I want them all to look as close as possible and figure the kelvin color of the ST ultra's were as close to the HD 6000K that I ordered...

I don't know what to tell you as "best non-HID" clones... The silver stars are amaizing lights and make a good color... I have had them in mulitple vehicles (a town and country in alaska, a 02 SVT Focus in Alaska) and I loved them... They added more light to the road and the color was easier to see with...

I found a good deal on the 9005XS on ebay I think it was $16 for a set after shipping (just gotta look and you can find a steal)... the standard 9006's were about $25... Both way less then the car parts store sell them for...

I will take pics for you once mine all get here... 3 sets of bulbs from 3 seperate sellers on ebay...
