AU Head lights

Guys iv got some globes from my old ea they are those blue xenon ones.

The problem is i pick up my au tomorrow :) :)

The globes i have are 100/90 H4 and 100w H3. They are all the next step up from standard globe output. Will these burn or melt my headlights?

Another problem im thinking is au lights are very birght and will these be so bright that im been highbeamed all the time. They use to be very good in my old ea lights and I got the occasional high beaming.

Any advice on what I should do, if i have to replace my bulbs what are the ones that are actually a noticable blue also probably illegal?

Re: AU Head lights

I have ultra white bulbs in my AU and people are constantly flashing their lights at me, all i have to do is actually flash my high beams at them though and it shuts them up pretty quick. The ultra whites are ultra bright.

Re: AU Head lights

The higher wattage bulb can damage the lens, not immediately but over time, I've seen one where it looks like the lens has small cracks across it.

Re: AU Head lights

the high wattage WILL melt the lens on AU headlights - it only didnt melt you ea's ones cos they were glass.

it'll also damage the chrome reflector

you guys might need to adjust your headlight aiming and bring your reflectors down a bit if you are being high beamed.........


also AU's have a H1 and a H4 , so your H3 will be useless
