    I see no reason. Other than the road legal side of it. But I would not recomend it as the higher power drain could melt the wiring and cause untold damage.

    I can't remember the last time I used my fogs (I would only use them legally) so I would not benefit from any different bulbs.

    Now done, this is not easy to do you have to remove the large shield under the car and the you have access to the bulb
    before and after pictures I also drilled holes in the fog light covers to stop condensation
