I'm using 1 relay for the highs (both bulbs) and 1 relay for the lows. I
think this is more than adequate. The relays make a big difference in 
how bright your lights are, BTW. I was planning to upgrade to brighter
bulbs after the lights were relayed, but after seeing the massive improvement
from the relays, I decided not to.
