I run 80/100. Wonderful light, aimed down 2 degrees instead of 1, I
don't get flashed period. The first set burnt out in one year. At
about $12-14 each, that was ok. Today my left one cooked, it's only
been four months. Not so ok. Of course Phil "big bulbs" Payne, running
something like 180/130 in his, whatever the highest is, has been heard
stating that they last something like a couple of months. He buys his
bulbs by the gross I think. Problem is they heat up more I guess...
Important aside - you better be running relays and fuses independent of
the stock wiring to go over the stock wattage, right?
