    Will melt the housing and lenses. I ran 100 watters in my Beretta GTZ. The lenses were glass. A week after I installed the 100 watt bulbs, the driver side lens cracked and the week after that, the pass side lens cracked. The wires were burned as well. If 100 watt bulbs can generate enough heat to crack glass, imagine the damage they can do to plastic. You could probably get away with 45/55 watt bulbs, but that is the limit IMO.

    They are for off road use. The ones I had weren't marked.

    Try Sylvania SilverStars. 880ST for the fogs. I have SilverStars in my fogs and I am quite happy.

    i run bulbs that are a bit higher wattage then the stockers and have not had a problem. I want to say that they are only about 10 watts higher.......100watts will most definitely ruin your housing and harness etc, with the possibility of causing other electrical problems due to the melting
