Headlight bulb question

i bought H4 Halogen White Blue Car Front Headlight Bulbs they are nice bright lights with the blue tint. The bulbs have the same end on the to plug right in but they say 100/110 watt the stock bulb is 55/60 watt will this hurt anything if i install the new bulb? Thank you so much

Before I switched to the 8000k HID...I was running this PIAA bulb for a couple years...bought it from this place...was cheaper to buy the twin pack than buying one bulb itself...this is the same wattage as the stock H-4
PIAA BULB: H4 SUPER PLASMA GT-X 60/55W=135/125W (TWIN) - 15962 - DIRECT TUNING

I'm thinking of using this bulb on a 2006 Mastiff (orignal EHC), anyone induce any problems with the EHC using the plasma bulb. I sure would love to have more light at night and don't want to go to the HID setup. Big Dog dealer stated I would be asking for problems with the EHC if I installed HID.

I actually talked to the manufacturer of the headlight housings that were put on the BD's, I have all the info at my office at home. Anyway's I called them about a month ago about a problem I have anytime I trailer the BD to Sturgis my Light bulb filament is broke. Like I said all the names are at home so I'll post them monday. But the bulb has a life time guaranty from breaking. It will cost $55.00 plus shipping when it hit's the market. It is experimental and I have 1 of the first 3 on a test trial basis. They will hit the market sometimes in 2012.

The PIAA bulbs are awesome bulbs. Used to put them in cars all the time at my shop up in michigan. They have a really cool color to them and stand out, but due to them being the same wattage as the stock bulb, and having a coating on them to give the color, they actually put less light on the road. But that is the case with any bulb that goes up the Kelvin scale = less light on road.

No problem dude...but just so you know...those are 2 different bulbs...the link that I put up is for the H4-Super Plasma GTX...the link you put up on Amazon is for the Intense White....those are cheaper than the Super Plasma...at the time when I bought mine..that was the cheapest I found for the Super Plasma, it was cheaper to buy the 2 pack than spend $40+ for 1 bulb...that was about 4 years ago..The link you put up is a good price for the Intense White style
