Re: glx foglights (VdubLove)

I've been running 85W Allweather H3 lamps in my 98 GLX fogs. so far no problems, been in long time. recently checked out the sockets, etc. no signs of overheating. I cannot find 85 W Allweathers anymore, I think they are not made anymore. The higher wattges would cause troubles. I've seen 100W lamps, way too much...nevr go that hihg. 85W lamps are at the edge of tripping the ckt breaker for the lamp ckts, with the higher current draw. But so far it has not had any problems. I would not go any higher watts. the light level between teh 55W allWeathers and 85 W is quite dramatic. since teh stock heamlamps really suck on teh older VW's...The new Golfs look much better, they are almost E code lens types. Also the new Golfs are using better lamps than 9004 types...I think the new versions are H7 types or 9007?
