    anybody ever upgrade their hella 700ffs to 100w bulbs instead of 55w bulbs? the light output with the 55w bulbs sucks so I am thinking I'd like 100w bulbs. would the original wiring, relay, and fuse be ok to use for 100w bulbs? would the light housing be ok with a 100w bulb? I am electrically challenged so any help would be greatly appreciated!

    you are fine.

    although i recommend H83135312, hella's 100w performance H3.

    as with all bulbs make sure you spin the capsule in a paper towel soaked with isopropyl alcohol before installation. even if you don't touch the glass, some tiny asian somewhere might have.
