There hasn't been any response to this post and it would definitely be important to know if the stock headlamp circuit can handle the additional current required. Assuming the factory bulbs are 55/60s, two bulbs would draw about 4 amps on low beam and 4.3 amps on high beam. The 80/100s would draw about 6 amps on low and 7 amps on high. That really isn't a huge increase, but if anyone has tried the 80/100s it would be great to hear if you've had any problems or went to a relay.Oh great, just when I thought I was done buying toys! I just talked to the guy about ordering those lights. Of course, he was quick about getting them sold to me, duh. He was nice enough to mention that since I was going with a higher wattage light that I might want to install a relay. Any thoughts from any of you electrical types out there? I am one of those mechanical types! He mentioned that it could tend to mess things up on my electrical if I don't use a relay. Scares me!
I'm also wondering if the additional heat causes problems for the lens, reflector or the mirror plating on the reflector.
