9004 high wattage replacement bulbs
After upgrading (in a big way) my stock lighting in my 87 4000S with
a set of Hella 100W driving/fog lights, I have wondered about the high
wattage (55/100 or 80/100) bulbs that are advertised in the back of the big
car magazines. Do they work? Anyone have experience with them? I don't
want a major meltdown in the engine compartment, and would also only use
the 55/100W as the 80W lows would be too bright for the street, IMHO.
The only other concern of mine is that the 100W Hella's already put a pretty
good draw on the alternator. Would the high-watt bulbs "pull" too much on
a stock charging system?
For those of you unfamiliar with the bulbs, I am speaking of the 9004
replacements for the stock headlight bulbs. About $20 each.
