    100W Fog Lights?

    Hi,
    I saw Philips H3 110W off-road fog light that will fit on my 1998 E38. I have a concern....Will this cause problems in my electrical system? I am trying to get more light on the road....Have tried the PIAA lights... but that did not really help much...Please advise on what I should do here....Thanks.

    No worries what so ever. For like 5 years I've had nothing but 100W bulbs in everything. (Highs, lows, fogs)

    I have never seen an issue.

    Hi,
    Thanks for the input.. The light power is 100W not 110W .. and one more question.. What is the longevity of these lights...Do they burn out a lot... I do drive at night for a while...(Long commute to home from work!).

    The life is not too bad. I would suggest getting a bulbs from Hella. Or some other quality company. Think German. :)G__Man

    have 100W in E30 for many years and

    no problems. The low beams are something like 80/100W, high are 100W--they last a few years. Only buy Hella--cost me about $8.50 a bulb from my local auto store as special order (otherwise it can be much more expensive). Did some research on using them for Fog lights on E30, and the feedback i got from someone who uses fog lights all the time is because the heat builds up in such a small space, they will last 6 to 12 months. I did not put them into fog lights. I also heard from one person who said on the fog lights it melted the lens--but that may be dependent on car.
    You may have to do what i did with increasing the fuse for the bulbs. I think the original on E30 was a 7.5 W fuse, 10 W was too small, i went to 15 W, no problems after having them in for 12 years. No issue with the wiring handling the load.
    when using low beams on the 80W/100W bulb, no issues with any oncoming car flashing you, no probem it they are aimed properly.
