If they are standard incandescent bulbs

Try Osram Nightbreakers or Philips Racing Vision

Also make sure the plastic lenses don’t have a layer of bio degraded material on them
Can normally be cleaned off with headlight restorer

If they are Xenons then not much you can do to upgrade them

The OSRAM Nightbreakers are brighter than the normal halogen bulbs but their lifespan isn't the best.
