Default H3 bulb?'*

has anyone that has the Angle eyes or the cyberwhites changed the 55W H3 bulb to the 100W H3 bulb. Would this effect the wiring as to melt it?

100w!?!?!?\ Holy crap, the 55w'* are brighter then anything i'll NEED, or want.

The wiring would depend on how you hook them up.

Yeah i'd say so. Factory can do about 50-55w bulbs easy, but it'* designed for the 35 or 39w bulbs.

I have Angle Eyes and put in SilverStar H3 bubs, Looks great, matches the lights perfectly and is CRAZY bright.

Not sure on the wattage of them but they put out 1100 lumens, the headlamps only put out 1000 lumens. no need to go 100 watt and push it, it could work but I would run a relay and new wire then and still worrry.
