You *will* eventually fry your stock headlight switch if you do that, and
it is not fruitful to put higher wattage bulbs in the stock DOT lamp
housings when the beam pattern is so poor.  You'll just get more
useless, scattered light.  Install to a relay wiring harness and use
E-code lamps, that's the only way to get real improvements.

Search the audifans archives.  There is plenty of info on this subject.
