Wiring for hi wattage bulbs in 123 euros

Anyone use these
http://kyo-automotive-inc.amazonwebstore.com/KYO-H4-Headlight-Upgrade-Wire-Harness/M/B0014JH478.htm

to put higher wattage bulbs in their euros? It's my understanding the whole thing would have to fit inside the headlight as it has to plug directly to the bulb. Not much room in there. I have euros with hi watts on my 124 but can't remember how I did it and its not available right now.

Merry Christmas!

I think you will find they are just an attachment that has a ceramic plug instead of plastic. I have 150/100 w globes in my w123, as its Australian it has euro type lights. When I first put the globes in I had problems with the plastic part of the plug starting to melt. I just removed the plastic & have only the wire lugs plugged onto the globes. My w124 has plastic reflectors so I have limited it to 100/80 w globes. No problems so far with them. Hope that helps.

Thanks Layback. I have a set of Depo's in my 124 with 100/80 watts in them. I used the upgraded harness with that I am sure as I have had no wiring problems and it gets driven a lot at night.
