    Thanks for leaving me with burnt out fog lights, boss! Fortunately, I noticed before I took it in for inspection. These bulbs are WAY harder to replace than the bug eye design.

    sorry to raise this thread from the dead but i noticed that someone put in the 100 watt h3's in instead of the recommended 55 watt. are there any detrimental effects from doing that? lower bulb life? (i also noticed that the bulbs were shot when the car ws sold )

    thanx for any info!

    Thanks again
