What ever ones you decide on make sure they are ADR compliant for a start.

I just got some Narva +50 for my car, yet to say if they are better then standard yet, but they seem to throw more light further as claimed.

If i had any probs i was just gunna say my mechanic put em in and i have no idea about cars (play dumb duh!! :P)

nobody has been flashing their lights at me so thats a good sign.

Also if anyone knows, whats the size of the headlight relay ???
These lights (100w) draw 8.2 amps each, thats 16.4 amps for both.
Add on top of that parkers and it could be getting close to 20amps, i always thought headlight relays were 20a rated, but i cant get under my battery to have a look.

will these 100W xenons cause the lenses to melt and go more yellow in the EF/EL's??

I was worried about both those things .... but as the globes are already in my car im not taking them back now ...

My defence is someone should have warned me when I bought them ... cause nobody did...

Ace, that excuse won't be much comfort when you burn the car to the ground because the wiring has melted from the headlights trying to draw too much current :P
