I installed GP Thunder 100/80 eight months ago on mine. Only problem I had was the OEM DRL fuses burnt the first day. Installed new one and no problem since.

oh thats good to hear...i just didnt wanna burn any wires or anything bad to the ecu...because i think the standard is 55 low and 65 high so 55 to 80 seems a bit stressful on the wires ???


i was googling around loll and i found osram sylvania which are labled as "cool blue" 9007s and they run at 55/65 but those hipro 5900k ones do look really nice and not to much blue in them just a hint in my navigator but ima go check those osram ones at my auto zone or o'reillys if not ill just install these loll

Fuse should go before you fry the wires anyway. Just don't oversize the fuse.
