Headlight bulbs

Postby FEWRIOUS » Sat Apr 15, 2017 9:14 pm

Hi all
I'm just wondering if anyone has fitted 100w bulbs to their megane 3 or if anyone knows of any complications that they might cause as I'm after a good set of xenon style bulbs for mine :?:
Cheers :cool:

Don't think the wires will be able to take the extra amps drawn by 100w bulbs.
Amps = watts / volts
so standard 65w bulbs will draw 5.4 amps.
100w bulbs will draw 8.3 amps.
150% more power drawn.
