Hi Guys,

Winter is nearly here! and the nights are drawing in. The main beam lights on my car (Mk2 172) are fairly useless.
Does anyone know if I can put real bulbs in (say 100-150 watt),or if this will melt the lenses. I know its illegal for road use, but I have a long twisty private drive for any plod listening in. Failing decent bulbs, does anyone have any experience of a good place to fit a couple of driving lights on the front of a 172, without restricting any more the airflow under the bonnet?
