Man you shouldnt, you may melt the lense and the reflector and also blow some fuses.

Theres a reason why they are 55/60w

Calibre from supercheap is ok, get the brighter 50% or whatever they are.
Phillips good as well, but be prepared for higher prices
Narva good as well.

I personally used OSRM from england, best ones i came across however the Calibre were good, never tried the Narva or Phillips but heard good things


the calibre 50% brighter are they actually brighter as in can you see further?

yeh they have more brightness and goes further. Pretty good globes, costs bout $35

Also, check the headlight cover. If it has gone yellow there are ways to make em better again, but most techniques are temp only, maybe get some aftermarket headlights.

There are some threads about how to fix em up, but generally headlight repair kit from supercheap work well and last longest.


yeah mine are a bit faded havnt gone yellow yet but they need replacing i was going to put some new ones in the $35 globes is that for a pair or per globe and is that the calibre one?

The blue is a bit misleading, they aint really blue but they are good globes

And remember to recalibrate the lens to get a better spread along the road if you need it.


yeah its just a blue tint by the way by calibrate you mean adjust the headlight up or down how do you do this
