I saw a pair of H1-80W Xenon bulbs, 4500 K, for the RSX. I know the factory bulbs are 55W, so are the Xenon bulbs to powerfull? Thanks, :thumbsup:

If the wattage is too high and you run it for an extended period of time, it may just melt the wiring harness.

Ditto. If you run bulbs that are a true 80 watts you run a very good chance of buring up your wiring, melting the housing/ reflector, etc. Its sooo not worth it dude. Although many bulbs these days are advertised as "emitting the same light as an 80 watt bulb". Thats not the same thing....those are usually only running on 55 watts, and should be fine. But if it actually is an 80 Watt bulb...RUN AWAY! RUN AWAY!
