Could someone help me with some aftermarket bulbs?

I'm a complete rookie about this kinda of stuff. I just replaced my actual headlight fixture, it was extremely foggy. I'm still not satisfied with the output of the generic bulb on that side.

I basically have two different headlight fixtures and two different bulbs in there right now, and it seems one shines better than the other. I see other headlights out there and mine is literally sad....

Could it be possible one isn't placed properly, it seems secured in there with the clamps, or are the generic bulbs just crappy?

What kind/brand of bulbs should I put in both sides? I would like to purchase something off Ebay if I could and I'm not looking for some superpower bulbs or some different color. Thank you.

the Xtravisions from silverstar are wonderful as the light output is only 15% better than stock but with great life and spread. My headlight casings are beyond fadded and the silverstar xtravisions are awesome for the price

and yeah, stock halogens are alright. but older bulbs do dim over time and will lose light output. and if the light isnt aimed correctly then you will actually lose good light
