    Ang alam kong advantage nya sa mga honda and iba pang cars eh iwas sunog sa circuit board (pakorek na lang po kung mali) pag sinalpakan ng mas mataas na wattage na bulbs.

    kung upgrade ng wattage, relay is highly recommended para

    hindi uminit ang wires at ma maximize ang bulb capacity.

    no need kung stock wattage lang.

    yeah, i heard from an installer about that effect. not sure if it's just sales talk tho. but anyhow, i would think it would help the system a bit, if just to maintain a consistent flow of electricity. a little help but nothing major.

    ok, what about the battery life span? O.T. hindi kaya maubos battery sa dami na electricity load?

    i doubt it. negligible lang ang kain niya sa battery mo. and besides, you dont have to worry about anything as long as your electrical system is in good condition. the battery is charged when the car is on via alternator.

    I had my wires changed and installed with relays. I upgraded the bulbs that I used from stock to 80W/100W. Of course, the sockets were changed to ceramics. Lakas ng ilaw. Great for heavy downpour.

    80/100W and above, adv are definitely much brighter throw

    but add'l cost (wires, relay, sockets and labor) while sa stock

    wattage of 55/60W i suggest you invest to either osram silverstar

    (whiter than stock but not as super whites) with 50% light throw

    or philips vision plus. mas mahal lang ng konti compared to reg halogens.
