Absolutely. BTW, I've tried high power 9004 bulbs on my wife's previous car
(a Saab 9000) and found that  I spent a lot of time replacing crisped
connectors. IMHO, the 9004 bulb connector simply can't handle the extra
juice from a higher wattage bulb, so I'm not going this route on the Audi.
I did note, however, that GE has a higher performance bulb that is the same
wattage as a standard bulb, supposedly with up to 80% more light (which by
the way, is about the minimum you'd need to notice *any* difference).
Anyone have any experience with these bulbs?

Thanks! There *are* a couple of free fuse sockets...I'm more apprehensive
about not being able to remove the thing without disturbing a lot and then
not being able to get it back together...I know it looks simple and clean
from above...that's what scares me ;-)
