    They would draw more power! No guarantee of a brighter or 'better' light though..

    100watts are illegal for road use as I understand. They also take twice the current of the existing 12volt 55 watt bulbs possibly resulting wiring issues like overheating the first that springs to mind.....

    There are 55wat bulbs available that are 30% & upto 50% brighter and still legal.. bit never tried them. There are threads on here about adjusting the existing headlamp beams higher improving night time visibility. Chek 'em out in Search section....Cheers

    For a more white colour you'd be better off with 6000k, the 8000k's are pretty blue

    Depends on personal preference, I have 8K HiDs and love them, true they can be a bit blue for some, but never had issues with police or MOT's etc, so its upto you.......
