    Wouldnt think so, i've used 100w bulbs in almost every car i've owned in the past with the exception of the Vec C and never had the wiring over heat, just bare in mind the Vec C has plastic headlights(dont know if the B does) and it may be the bulb that produces too much heat for the headlight.

    You might want to bear in mind they're illegal for road use.
