    Hi All;

    One of the benefits of Factory Xenons is the self leveling feature. You would not be able to make that work. Put 2 people in the back and you would be blinding everyone then not able to see very far in front of you with less load in the car.

    The standard h7 is 55 watt - Osram makes a "Rally 65 Watt H7" that offers more light without blinding oncoming traffic
