The different orientation of the filaments might change the relationship of
light source and reflector. Give it a try and check out the beam pattern.
Hope it doesn't throw light into oncoming drivers' eyes.
I think my driver's manual states the 9004's to be of 55/60 output. I would
love to get a pair of these as much of my driving is on low beams. 55 would
give a nice boost up from 45. (45/65 GE's) 

Does a 55/80 configuration bulbs exist? Would the Audi wiring handle 80W
high beams or am I just dreaming.
