The infamous 'quick blinker' just stopped today and turns out I need to replace my left headlight bulb! I got the old one out and noticed it was blue! The one on the rights normal and clear :s also the left one was 100w whilst the left is 55w! Not had the car long so I wasn't the one who installed them! Anyways I had a spare 55w clear light lying around so I put that in there, quick question though! I had a look online and it can support upto 100w!? Would it be worth swapping them for 100w ones!? Would it make any real difference!? Also I forgot to use tissues to handle them as it was freezing cold and I was in a hurry! Would maybe leaving fingerprints on them damage the bulbs!? I know your not supposed to touch them but if needs be I'll just pull em out and clean em!

Also what's all this halogen/hid stuff!? It's all new to me and I'm happy enough with standard lights as long as they work lol :p
