If they are actual 100w bulbs, don't do it. It's not the housings so much as the skinny wiring Mazda uses for the headlights. I'm surprised it doesn't burn up with the 55w bulbs.

They may be, however, 55w bulbs with a 'claimed' brightness of a 100w. That would be fine, as long as you're OK with being suckered into believing a blue-coated bulb puts out more light than a clear one.

dont even think about getting over 35 watts. 55w burn up your wiring and draw too much power. not to mention they are totally illegal because it is like having your high beams on to people coming toward you. 35watt is the way to go.

philips +50 is the best you will get in that price range. its a bit whiter than stock but definately brighter without overdoing or messing up wiring. HID is the only real way to go though. [it took me 2 months to save up but it is the best mod ive done to my car]

Yeah, stock wattage is 55. Don't get the eBay bulbs they'll burn up your wires.

If you really want bright lights, there is nothing that's going to be better than buying HIDs. theRPMstore! as always is the best place to get them.

If you want cheap bulbs check out StreetUnits site. I haven't personally run these bulbs, so I can't speak of the bulb life, nor there brightness. They are Luminics brand bulbs.

Most ebay bulbs are 100W bulbs...so yes they will burn up your wires.

I'd go with a pair of Nokico, Luminics, or PIAA

Bro on thing i've learned over the years is Im no too rich to buy cheap things.

Do HID's....i had bulbs on the 6 55w once, just like stock, and they always burned. Just get a 6000k HID kit 35watt. If you want white.

6000k will be bluish. if you want white go the standard 4300k.

i would highly encourage apexicone (spelling maybe off), katsuro, and even Xtec
