USE PIAA H-7 bulbs!!!!!!!!!!!!

PIAA H-7 Platinum 110 Watt Super White bulbs in both the low beam and high beams!!!!!!!!!!!!! $48.00 a pair, and worth every penny, when you turn on your lower fog lights with these.....you can double the beam length and width of the stock bulbs.

And now I have the PIAA 1100XX bulbs being delivered Monday, so there will be 6 PIAA high performance bulbs up front, and the German 55 Watt high performance bulbs in the lower fog light assembly from EC.....if they say " I didn't see him," they are lying!!!!!!

Expensive but it only costs 10% more to go first class..why not....??

Ummm, just a tad illegal, for one. Might melt your bulb housings, for another.
Is that a real 110 watts? Or a "seems like" 110 watts and is actually only 55 watts.
I think that the housings conform to the Euro-standard 65 watts and can safely take that much heat.
You're litterally playing with fire to put in higher wattage bulbs.

I've personally seen melted housings from 80 watt bulbs when I worked at a dealership.
