3-Series (E46, E90)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1999 to Current. Models include: BMW 316i, BMW 318i, BMW 318Ci, BMW 320i, BMW 323i, BMW 325i, BMW 330i, BMW 328 Ci, BMW 328i, BMW 325i/xi, BMW 330Ci, BMW 320d, BMW 330d, BMW 335d.
for a 2004 325ci, can i replace the standard globes (non xenon) with a higher powered "white globe" ? or do i have to use exactly the same wattage ? I've heard that replaceing the standard globes with the white globes may actually reduce the output so i thought putting a higher powered globe might make up the difference. Am i likely to damage wiring etc. with a higher powered globe ? What have people used in their experiences for the 'white look' globes ?
The stock one are 55 watts, you can go up to 75 watts. Anything above will melt sockets and fry wires sooner or later.Before installing aftermarket bulbs make sure all contact points betwen bulbs and sockets are clean.
They have some awesome kits and even better customer service just in case. This way you can get the best possible light output and be able to pick what temperature you would like (which helps determine color)! There really is no subtitue for HID's. They draw less power and produce far more light (and even a nice color of your choice)!
