Redline 9007 bulbs...

I had a store credit so i went ahead and bought these light. The price was 14.99 closeout. So I said what the hell and grabbed them. I changed them in the parking lot then tested them out. I noticed immidatly that they were alot whiter than the silver stars that i had in there before. SO far im impressed.

When i went out tonight, i noticed that they are the same color as the HID's (which i want). I will say they arnt as bright as Silver Stars but im still happy with them...

ill post back in a month as a follow up

you should go back and get the 9005 bulbs for your fogs, you gotta modify the bulb a lil to make it fit but having headlights in a fog lights place kicks ****

What matters is what the bulb is actually drawing in reality. If it is drawing 80/100, you are going to melt your wiring harness. You should never put anything with a higher than stock wattage in the headlights because the wiring can not handle it. There are plenty of bulbs out there are brighter without drawing more amps than usual.

Heat.

Tiny *** wires can't handle that kind of amps. Biproduct of the high resistance is heat. heat melts wires and plugs. Melting wires and plugs costs money to replace, you'll have no functioing lights, and god help you if the melting goes back into one of the main harnesses.

"Yet" doesn't mean "won't". Trut me, it will, it's happened to more than one person here.

I've read and heard a lot of people complaining about melting wire harnesses and having to replace them and all that jazz.

I have bulbs (both 9007 and 9005 Nokya Stage II Arctic White) that pull more wattage than his and i've had my fog lights in for about 2 years now and no problems. The 9007s aren't in anymore because i have my hid lights in. I haven't had any problems with my harnesses or bulbs except for the clips that hold them on breaking off due to age.

Bah, those clips break when they are brand new. Neither of my headlights have clips left on them, they both broke the first time I pulled the headlights out to put strobes in. The fog light wires can handle the 65 watt 9005 bulbs fine, just like the stock headlights can handle the stock 65 watt high beams just fine.

I can't explain why some people have better luck than others as far as surviving the extra load. I'd rather not take the chance hoping I luck out.

Seriously man i wouldn't worry about it. by the time you look for someone to test them it'd be a waste of time. One thing i can say, and this goes for everything you buy, is you get what you pay for. So if you buy cheap expect to get those types of results...
