And the place that sold you the bulbs should have upgraded (heavier gauge) wires W/connectors for sale.

I also have a 2000 Max with factory headlights. I asked
my service advisor about adding those HID bulbs. He told
me if I didn't change out the wireing, the wires would
burn out. So I still have the factory halogens. OH well

again a nice comeback, I do indeed drive an explorer, and your point is useless as usual. I have owned 5 nissans and intend to own another in the coming years.

I still know plenty about the cars and still help others with stuff. So please don't try to insult me or my intelligence with your gay comments. Plus my SUV is paid for and I am buying a house, so I don't need a maxima payment. I could own a 2k2 if I wanted to, but I have other priorities now. Thanks for playing now hack away......

IBTL........

IT started with a joke I made about you, its a joke. You got mad I flamed you then. I help others with local installs, other stuff. Not gay IMs about whether or not a rear window deflector would look cool or not, so shut it.

IBTL.......

Using those fake blue high powered bulbs will melt your wires. They are also useless because the tinted blue bulb decreases the light output.

I have done research on this and have come to one conclusion. Philips Vision Plus bulbs are the best you can buy. They are also in stock wattage, so nothing will melt. This is what they use in Germany. They emit a true white light. They cost me $30 and are the brightest bulb you can get without getting HID. Trust me I have tried them all.

CASPORTTOURING is where you can buy them. All Motorcycles w/ H4 bulbs like ours use them.
