    Can you replace your fog bulbs without going to VX like it says in the owners manual? If so how do you do it?
    And can you replace them with a higher watt bulb, i did this with my headlight bulbs (55w-out / 100w-in) had no problems???

    Do you do a lot of night-time rally stages up your way then? I believe anything over 55W is not only damaging to the headlight reflector, but also a possible MOT fail.....

    I will not recomend using a bigger bulb (watts) the electrical connections might fail do to the exxxes of current needed....they might heat up to much the wires...
    You can get same wattage bulbs that deliver a little stronger beam IMO

    BlueRob is absolutely correct. If you upgrade from a 55w to a 100W bulb you need to replace all the wiring and the relay in the circuit since you are drawing virtually twice the current. Also, anything over 55W in a post 1992 car (or is it '84?) is against construction and use regulations and hence illegal.

    Having said that, the vectra puts out so little light, i doubt anyone would notice Just need to watch out for those melting wires!
