Subject: E36 100W High Beams-Caution!!!
It is not advised to use the 100W bulbs in the E36 3-Series for high beam use.
We have seen that the headlight assembly has melted after prolong use. Since
there is an outer plastic cover over the headlights there is no airflow to
cool the assembly resulting in pieces melting. THIS HAS HAPPENED!!! Please
keep this in mind before changing your high beams to 100W bulbs. The 80W
bulbs have been working well in the low beams. It is recommended to use
dielectric grease for any bulb upgrade to ensure good conductivity.
