Projector Bulbs

ok i have searched through the fourms and i found nothing about this topic. the black projectors require low beam H3 12v 55w / high beam H1 12v 55w. I want some xenon bulbs from hiper industries but the h3 bulbs draw 85/80W > 130/100W and the h1 bulbs draw 85/80W > 130/100W. Ok heres the question. because the the new bulbs draw more wattage will that melt my projector lights? or is it ok. thanks in advance guys.

I have had so many problems with my projector headlights/unit ! I now have my second pair ! When i had my first pair, i bought Xenon super white bulbs (both lows and highs) and one of my low bulbs blew with-in 4 dayz, which isnt normal for brand new bulbs ! So i drove with my highs on for about 20 min. and they melted tha S**T out of my unit ! So now i juss hae tha stock bulbs ! I did change my parking and turn signals, those are fine ! My advice is to stick with no higher than 65 watt bulbs ! Up to you though ! Hop this helped you out a lil' !

I have those same Xenon bulbs for my low and my projectors haven't melted (yet). I do suggest you leave your hi's stock if you plan on driving with your hi's for more than 10mins.

hahaha, i'm just looking at my old, (not stock) lights where one of them burnt out. when i look closely, one of the coils in the bulb just snapped right off. anyways, i know that wasn't on this topic, but i wouldn't have remebered by the time i found a topic for it. i'd be willing to bet thought at PIAA makes bulbs that fit the description your projectors ask for.

Hey Guy, get H3 bulbs, and go for the brand !! And buy it from the store, not the net. So I paid 75 for my H3 PIAA but if anything happens, I can get another set right awayfrom the store for free
