What h4 bulb do i get?

I am planning to get h4 hella e code headlights with an arb headlight wiring harness and i want some good h4 bulbs anywhere from 80-130 watt bulbs and was wondering suggestions for good ones that last a while with a good light/pattern output and the place i can buy them from online as for i have trouble finding bulbs other than standard wattage. Thanks

Here is a good source for inexpensive but high quality Hella H4 bulbs:

Susquehanna MotorSports - Auto Performance Products Catalog

As for what you buy, get the 12v 60/55w version which is the same as the stock headlights. You should only run higher watts after you add relays and beef the wires.

PLEASE DO NOT run the stupid blue bulbs which hurt other people's eys while making more glare for the owner. Go here to read all about true performance headlights:

I want yellow/white higher wattage bulbs and I do happen to be upgrading the relays and wiring, do you have any recommendations on higher then 55/60 watt bulbs?

I like my IPF Fatboys... 80/60 watts (yes, higher wattage on the low beams, where you probably get more use out of it). They've done great in my IPF ecode housings. I also have the ARB harness and was pleased with the construction of it, although I wasn't able to get the relays 100% tight into their sockets. I just wrapped electrical tape around the whole thing and haven't had any issues in over a year so far.
