for conversation purposes we will use a 6000k or 8000k low beam xenon/halogen or halogen
(a 55w is 4.5 amps, a 65w is 5.4 amps, a 100w is 8.3 amps)

to what purpose does watts (ie amps) play in the brightness of a bulb? most bulbs are 55w low and 65w hi beam (except HID)

so is a 100w low beam brighter then a 55w or 65w
is a 100w 6000k low beam brighter than a 55w or 65w 8000k low beam

is a higher watt bulb more likely to have a shorter life
