If what you're after is supplemental lighting for dark roads, buy some auxiliary driving lights and install them. Fog lights are not intended to serve this purpose and are for use in poor weather conditions only, you can't change that by putting brighter bulbs in them.
Yeah thats what i intended to use them for, weather conditions. Not for running 24/7 in a DD car. I didnt even want these 100w bulbs. Its just that i didnt notice they were 100w till i took em home from the shop.

Thanks for the help guys
