Question : I
TRAVEL a lot at night and want to change the headlight bulb output from the
current 50 watts to a higher wattage of 100 or 110 watts ( type 3700k ) for
my new Honda CRV.
However, I am worried about the lamp holder and the whole reflector lens.
Can it be done ?
A few accessory shops give me conflicting advice and the Honda service
center is of no help either.
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
Normally, changing the lamp from 55 or 60 watts to 100 watts would not be a
problem as the wiring should be able to take the extra load.
However, there is a lot of additional heat generated by the lamp and if
there is insufficient ventilation at the back of the lamp assembly, there is
a possibility of distortion, etc.
