Osram 80w Halogen?

Was thinking of using this for both high/low beams, but was wondering if anyone has used them before? I know the 65W is fairly popular, but these seem to be a bit better....just not trying to melt anything

If the bulb truly does use 80 watts i would be very concerned about heat and discoloration inside the headlight over a prolonged use. It goes without saying, but its also not legal or safe because of how bright they are

Just bought the 65w version to be on the safe side too, but if anyone has feedback on the 80w version if its truly drawing that much power I'd appreciate it.
