Xenon Bulbs

Hi,

Anyone have experinece with putting Xenon bulbs on their stock Boxster lights?

The seller claims that they are 30% xenon gas and plugs into the stock bulb sockets and does not melt the headlight shell and is much brighter.

Re: Xenon Bulbs

He does recommend the 55watt bulbs and that anything higher would cause overheating problems.

Has anyone used 55 watt Xenon bulbs or any other bulb that was 55 watts and still caused an overheating problem?

How long did it take to notice the overheating problem with the bulbs?

Re: Xenon Bulbs

I used a 55w bulb. I believe I noticed them with around a dozen uses.

Re: Xenon Bulbs

I had this Xenon Bulb installed on my 01 S since March and no problem at all. It looks white color compare to the stock yellow color. Its only $39.
