I’ve upgraded the stock halogen headlight bulb of our EcoSport from 55/60W to 90/100W bulb. It resulted to more light output but generated a lot of heat. It also posed greater electrical load than the stock bulb, thus requiring a thicker wire harness. I used 4 relays (two for high beams, two for low beams), a few meters of thick stranded wire (harness) with protective sleeve, two ceramic bulb socket connectors, and two 10A fuses.
Notice the difference in the amount of light output in high and low beams with the high wattage halogen bulb (90/100 watts) and stock halogen bulb (55/60 watts).
Never install high wattage bulbs without the proper upgrades in wiring (harness) and fuse protection, doing so may cause the stock wiring to fail as they were never designed to accommodate load beyond the rated load of the stock bulb.
