Not sure how much heat the the lens can handle, but you should worry about the wiring harness melting... a dealership most likely won't have any extras sitting around, so you'd probably have to buy a whole new assemblyLow Beam 9006, 51W, Halogen[/b]
This is a bad, BAD idea. Using 80W bulbs will probably melt or at least damage the wiring to the headlights. I speak from experience -- I used high-wattage bulbs on my last car for awhile, and you could actually see burn and soot marks on the bulb connectors. Keep in mind that this will also void your warranty.Originally posted by tc'skill27@Sep 28 2004, 07:13 PM
i just got new low beam bulbs, they are the superwhite bulbs and they are 80 watts. does anyone know if this is too high of a wattage. cause after only a few minutes of being on the headlight glass get pretty hot.
