100W halogen bulbs = too hot for the foglight housing and possible overload on the wiring with too much current.

If you want brighter lighting, use H8 HIDs in your foglight housings. They run cooler and draw less current over the wires.

What brand are you using for the fogs? I'm thinking about doing H11 (55w) from MTEC. That's what I've seen a lot of people use in this forum.

Send a message via Yahoo to 330iTiAg
Is your front license plate frame lighted too (or is it just a reflection)?

If so, that leans a bit too much toward ricey.

Well there must be a distinct enough difference to call them H11 instead of H8.
so i'm assuming they don't.
