Ok, to say that EL headlights are useless is an understatement, I have replaced the globes with arctic blues, but it made SFA difference, but I have been told by 2 auto elecs that I can't go to a higher wattage globe because of the composite lenses and that the extra heat generated will melt the lense.
So I'm after some 'realworld' opinions, IE: YOU have fitted higher wattage globes in your EF/EL and havent had a problem, or it DID infact melt the lenses.
I occasionally drive all night so its not like a quick squirt down to the shops that I'm worried about, just wether I'll have a problem having the highbeam's on for 6-7 hours at a time.....
Otherwise I'll have to mount driving lights I have here instead...anyone wanna do it for me? :s6:
