Default which wattage bulbs for our cars?

i have a accent viva crdi 2006 model, i replaced the stock bulbs(of 60W/55W wattage) and put in 100W/90W for the first 15000kms and then they gave way so i switched 130W/100W bulbs and after 5000kms i noticed that the headlights sets were becoming dull and less clear so i switched back to the 100W/90W bulbs and after 10000kms they seem less dusty, and dull now, has someone experienced this too? if so please give your experiences and if possible provide me a solution so that i can use the 130W/100W bulbs with out harming my headlight sets, all your views are welcome, i intend to put in 130W/100W bulbs because the difference between the 100W/90Ws and the 130W/100W on is a lot!

the brand of bulbs that i have been using are all PHILIPS, the 130W/100W are called Rally Sport Bulbs, the 60W/55W were stock ones and the 100W/90W's name i dont remember, they are all yellow lights!

I have been using the Rallye 130W/100W for over 2 years now and i dont find any dullness in the HL's. Mine are not the clear lens type too.

P.S. Isnt it called Rallye and not rally sport?
