Several MB models have had tail light recalls due to bulb socket issues and overheating wire connections. It's also possible that the wrong replacement bulbs were inserted at some point. If you mean the back-up (reverse) lights are staying on, that could be due to faulty wiring or a defective backup switch on the transmission gear selector.
h4 head lights are normally 55/65 watts
head light brilliance is controlled by the condition of the reflector , the head light glass and head light alignment /aim
with the fitment of relays you can get up to 65 /85 watt bulbs but if the reflector is plastic then it will melt with bigger bulbs
LOOK INSIDE THE ENGINE BAY BEHIND THE HEADLIGHT, THERE IS MOST PROBABLY A RUBBER COVER WITH THE LIGHT WIRES GOING INTO IT, THERE WILL BE A PLASTIC PLUG WHICH THOSE WIRES CONNECT TO AND THE PLUG THEN IS CONNECTED TO THE HALOGEN LIGHT BULB.
REMOVE THE PLUG AND THE RUBBER COVER WHICH WILL EXPOSE THE REAR OF THE LIGHT, YOU MAY NOTICE THE 3 PRONGS AT THE REAR OF THE HALOGEN BULB, THERE ARE 2 SPRING TYPE WIRES THAT YOU HAVE TO PRESS DOWN AND PULL TOWARDS THE CENTRE TO ALLOW IT TO BE REMOVED, ONCE THEY ARE LOOSENED YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO REMOVE THE BULB AND REPLACE IT WITH THE NEW ONE BUT DO NOT TOUCH THE NEW BULB WITH YOUR FINGERS AS THE BULB MAY BLOW WHEN YOU TURN THE LIGHTS ON
CHECK THE WATTS ON THE SIDE OF THE OLD BULB AND MAKE SURE THE NEW BULB HAS THE SAME WATTS
REPLACE IN REVERSE ORDER TO REMOVAL
Well, you can buy high intensity replacement bulbs. They don't require changing the assembly, just the bulb. Many parts stores sell them for a fairly reasonable price. You could also add driving lights if they are legal in your area.
