fog light question on e65

would i harm anything if i put a 100watt bulb for my fogs in my e65? i would assume it would be brighter but im not sure if itll fuse or blow anything so can i possible upgrade to 100watts fog lights or should i just try to find 55watt bulbs.

fuse will not blow. although not recommended, it will work but the brighter the bulb you put in there, the shorter its life will be.

Why not just go with an HID conversion? If you are interested in doing that PM me because I have an extra conversion kit I was going to post in the classifieds soon.

cause buying a set of 10 dollar bulbs and installing it in 5 minutes versus buying a 200 dollar hid kit and installing it in hours plus all the error messages that pop up and having to fix it by removing the headlights and bumper and this and that crap... so will the 100 watt bulbs be brighter than the 55watt bulbs? or will it maintain the same 55 watt bulb brightness even if i put a 100watt bulb in there.
