I thought "Vision Plus" was just a hyped up sealed beam.  If I'm wrong
(probably), those are what you want.  $30-40 each lens depending on
source.  Installation, easy except swapping the H4 wires around. 
Install your relay system FIRST though, before you start playing with
higher wattages, and because the relays could easily increase your light
output by 15-20% immediately.
