My ellipsoid lights (at 100w) appears to me even. Maybe swap left and right bulbs to see if it's the bulbs?

To run 100w bulbs, you will have to upgrade the fuses from 7.5 amp to 10 amp. That's just for starters. You should also get a high temperature wiring kit from Josh at This will insure the bulbs won't melt the wiring within the lamp housing (100w bulbs get HOT). The wiring kit (including fuses) is about $40.

I'm running 100w bulbs now and it works really well. IMO, it's just as good as HID.

Good luck.

Are both side even in brightness? My passenger side seems to be a bit more dim. If i'm running 100 watt bulbs, how do i switch the fuse or amps or whatever i need to do to run them "safely"? thanks
