Well yesterday i bought Nokya H11 Low Beam bulbs. They are 100Watts. Put them in. Turned them on, and smelled like plastic melting. SO i look near the connector and little bit of white smoke coming off it. So i quickly turned them off and disconnected. Anyone running 100watt bulbs on their low beams?

From my reading here I wouldn't go above 65W on stock wiring.

The Hoen H11's are only about 65w and they recommend an upgraded connector to protect against heat for those so I can imagine that 100 could wipe out your wiring in a hurry.
