    Not legal for road use in UK but if you're not bothered then wiring will cope ok.

    Make sure you change them back for MOT purposes !!

    I would be just as concerned with your light switch. In my younger days I had 100w bulbs fitted to my Mk2 Golf & innocently just fitted them straight in. Over a short period of time it burnt out my light switch. Knowing more nowadays I should have rewired & used a relay. You would be better off fitting the Osram night breaker bulbs from what I've read.

    Dont confuse wattage with brightness or beam distance. Go for Osram nightbreakers ( or+), 90% brighter than std and crucially a 35m longer beam. ( and legal)
    It says on the box on that ebay advert only 60% brighter.
