Thanx Karthik,

Whole car is tinted to resist 40% heat but thats way to less for a Black Car. Well xenons are way over my budget since i am not ready to put 15K just for lights i would rather get some side skirts for her.. lol

Montoya you get 80W and 100W bulbs in the market. But if you go 100W you will need relay/cutout and new wiring. This *may* void your warranty. 80W will be more than enough. You can go in for the better quality ones(4000K) daylight instead of normal ones. In fogs also stick to 80W. This will give you enough light. The other risk with 100W is that you may burn your reflector/holder/wallet and you will be left with no light at all. So before you fit in anything, buy the optra bulb holder rubber/or get it off some accidental car, and see if it burns at 100degrees. If it doesn't you can put in high watt. This is the test i did for my indica and I have 130/100W working without any burning.

don't get hung up on wattage - got Osram silverstar 55w bulbs on the Vtec - pretty good light. The old man could see in the dark

Thanx Ajmat and TSK,

WIll be checking out what you said and then confirming the same. But i dont think that 100W will void the warranty..

So what are the most powerful lights to put on a car (excluding xenons and fake xenons)? Was thinking of doing something to my lancer headlights, for when i head out of town.
