Jeep compass headlights

Hi everyone! I have a 2011 Jeep Compass ((bit of an older model I know)) but I was interested in seeing if I could Upgrade the headlights. I mainly just want brighter stronger headlights but I think that means LED. If I do Upgrade what would I need To do? I have never upgraded my car before so I have No idea where to start. Also I want to do other sort of upgrades and such. Are there any suggestions for others?

I tried to put Led headlight H4 on my compass 2009 with canbus option (no error) then I had to get my old halogens back because the headlights were flickering after few seconds, I changed the led two times but still flickering!

First of all, I hope you only tried using the LED in place of the high beam bulb. The LED's scatter light differently than the factory halogen bulbs the reflectors are made for (same issue with people who put HID bulbs in place of normal driving lights with reflector housing instead of projectors). Now, if you tried replacing the High Beams with LED's (which scattering wouldnt matter because high-beams are blinding either way), you need to wire them to a relay to avoid the flickering. This is exactly what I did with my 9005 high beams in my 2015 Compass and they work phenomenal:
