Have blown a low beam "outside" bulb.
What is the wattage and has anyone run a higher wattage bulb?
If you run say a 100W does the electrical wirring cope with the extra amps?
The lenses are glass???

What is a good bulb wattage setup , brand , for all the 4 lights??

Many thanks

Cheers

Or if you've got the cash, get a set of HID Xenon lights.
Cost me $250 for the low beam pair, and its the best $$$ i've spent on my car to date.
