Lots of options when talking headlights. In my 11 I tried new halogen bulbs as well as HID's. If you are wanting the easy route go with Halogen bulbs IMO the best are the PIAA Xtreme White Plus, they are a 55 watt halogen and are a huge improvement over stock.
Now if you want to go the HID route in factory housings (Plug and pray kit) there are some very good options to be found just remember to adjust them after install or you will be getting a whack of high beams flashed at you. I personally like HID's but a set of quality halogen bulbs is a good inexpensive quick fix.
