I run 80W low 100W high in both my e34s ('89 535 with ellipsoids, '92 525iT with "normal" lenses). I've had no problems on either car (save one bulb exploding when first turned on - clearly a defective unit). It's not a huge increase in light output, but it is noticable and welcome.


I have found a source for 80watt 9006 (low beam) lamps.

Is anyone on the board running these lamps in their US spec ellipsoids? I've heard conflicting reports on running these lamps.

I have also sent an email to the shop asking if they have any specific information.

Here's the link to the bulbs if anyone is interested.
