100w bulbs in stock fog lights?

I have 05 rubi and was wondering if I could put 100w bulbs in stock fog lights. Has anyone done it and/or have had any problems?

That's nearly double the wattage of the 55 watt bulbs that were there, that'd be pushing it and I don't think I'd try it myself. Moving this to the electrical/electronic forum...

When you have a choice, buy American.

I've done it in an '04 Rubi. Installed them about a year ago and have not had any issues at all.

I did it by grabbing the wrong packs at the store. No problems but no gains either. I'll probably swap them back for 55s soon.

I would at least upgrade the wiring and add a relay. The OEM foglight wiring can barely handle the 55W foglights.

Get me my tools and beer.
