Factory K13GT xenon not very bright during the day - show me aux lights

So my buddies said that from the front, my xenon lamp is not that visible during the day. I need something brighter, perhaps. I'll try adjusting the aim on it, but if that doesn't work, I'm interested in a relatively inexpensive LED solution that doesn't draw much power but is quite visible from the front so cars can see me coming.

Suggestions? Tell me what you have on your GT and show me pics, please, if you have them.

Thanks.

Brian

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Awesome - had not seen those before. Price is reasonable and looks like they fit my requirements. Thanks! I'll keep my mind open for a bit longer and decide soon in case anything better comes along but these will be hard to beat.

I added the Denali 2 LED lights (from Twisted Throttle) to the front calipers.
