Headlight Bulbs, what Wattage do you use?

Stock headlight bulbs are all 55w, and yellow as hell. I bought some white bulbs on ebay, but I know white has less luminescence.

So i got 55w's for DRL, and 70w for low beams. However, i heard that higher Wattage is prone to burning out the bulb holders.

So my question is What's your experience with this?
1.-Are 70W safe?
2.-If i burn out the bulb holder where can i get new ones?

Hey there,

First off, I'm not sure about your first question, but have you considered HID conversions? If your looking for white light, 6000K HIDs are the way to go.

However, if you do try a 70 watt hologen and it melts the socket, you can probably pick one up from Advance Auto Parts, but for sure online (Just PM me if you want a website that sells them.

Hope this helps.

EDIT: Also, 95% of all HID kits run at 35 watts
