In Reply to: what bulbs for euro lights posted by ken on October 06, 1999 at 14:43:47:
: I recently purchased but have not yet installed euro headlights on my M-3. Can I use 85 or 100 watt H-1 bulbs without burning up the wiring? Will the relays accomodate the higher wattage bulbs? Please let me know your advice about and experience with such bulbs.
You might want to upgrade the internal wiring to handle the extra heat & current. Contact Josh at Eurosport (www.sharked.com).
The relays will handle the 100W bulbs just fine, but you might want to upgrade the 7.5A fuses to 10A. FWIW, I've kept the 7.5A, and only had one blow in the year I've had the lights (but I've been through *2* bulbs on the left side??).
See my page for installation and aiming tips (with 100W bulbs aiming in VERY important - I've not been flashed or had other problems, but then I spent 2+ hours aiming them correctly :-)).
