Re: Auxiliary lights

I just installed Hella 550s and put in PIAA 85W bulbs that are supposed to
perform like 135W. I tested them on a drive from LA to TX and back over the
holiday. They were great in the middle of nowhere, very, very bright. But I
can't imagine putting in any bulbs more powerful than those I installed.
you'll make everyone nuts on the road and be brighted by oncoming traffic no
matter how carefully you aim them. They are great, let me know what you do.
Temp wise, I had no problems but heard that 100s or higher could pose some
problems regarding the housing, but I've no firsthand experience with that.
