Go to an auto parts store. They can help you with what kind and might even be so kind as to put them in for you

Auto parts store is good, b/c they'll help answer any simple questions you have. I've done it and basically its easy as opening the hood, following directions as to how to unscrew the old bulb, and screwing the new one in. Be careful not to touch the glass part of the bulb itself because the hand's natural oils will cause the bulb to burn out.

ebay, type in 'civic 98 headlights'. look at the halo type headlights (i personally like the black ones). just get new bulbs to go with them. they come in different colors. i don't think they will get as bright as the bmw. i think they're hid. i think they make a hid conversion kit to make your lights brighter. if i was you, go jdm with your car, you'll get much more serious attention.

replace your halogens with xenon lights. that will surely make your headlight bright.
