hey guys, got xenon bulbs for me ride from "redline". i was kind of nervous about putting them in, because they were purchased at a best buy. the low beams worked perfectly, but when i put in the fogs, i realized after i was done that they were 100watts. They blew a couple of fuses, so i'm wondering if i can put a bigger fuse in, or can i even use them?

Go back and exchnage them. 100W bulbs cand and usually will literally cause the factory wire harness to melt. Nothing more than 55W should go there.

i apologize for being such a moron, dick!, when i was purchasing my headlights there was this little chart for each car, make and model, i found my make and model and proceeded to purchase those that corrisponded to the chart. so my the lights that i choose are the ones that the chart recommended. now that thats out of the way, is there anyway that i could get these to work i do a lot of night driving on one lane roads. and i want people to stop when they see me, you follow?!?!
