Right, i have FK angel eyes on my mk 4 Gsi. Now although they look the part they are infact not brilliant at lighting the way in the dark. Now one solution would be HIDs but i cant be arsed with changing it all.
Ive lived with it for 6-7 months now but ive purchased some 100w lamps.
Now atm the both the low and high beam are H7 55w which means they draw approx 4.5 Amps each when on.
Now the new 100w lamps will draw nearly 9 Amps each. Thats 18Amps with the lights on. Will the wiring loom cope with this? Also if i then switch the high beam on it will double to 36 Amps!!
Will the car be able to take that kind of load? im not worried about the batt, its the wiring looms. Im aware of the problems with cables bunched together but i do not know what size the cabling is for the lights eg 1mm 2.5 mm etc.
What do you lot know?
