Do NOT use overwattage bulbs in the USA assemblies. Not only will you melt your headlight wiring, but stuff in the car can also burn up. You'll know something is wrong when you smell it. I've seen this happen, and it is NOT pretty. The Euro's can accomodate a higher bulb with no harness, but even still, I put one in mine just to be safe.

TAKE OUT THAT HIGH POWER BULB. I wouldn't want to see you destroy the electrical portion of the car.
