New Headlights

So it's time that I get some new headlights for the 02. I was looking at BavAuto and have two options. Let me know what you think.

Option 1:
Replace with OE sealed beam headlights. $15 per headlight.

Option 2:
Replace with Hella Quartz headlight replacements for $54 per headlight.

The Hella Quartz lights are not sealed beam, and you can replace the bulbs without replacing the whole unit. They should be much brighter, but I am not sure by what factor.

I am hesitant to make the upgrade because of the massive price difference. I used to make late night canyon runs multiple times a week, but now I only do so while on breaks from school.

What do you all think? Comments are greatly appreciated. Thanks.
