You can get high-wattage H4 bulbs from many sources in the US. They are only "non-DOT" because they are "too bright," based on outmoded headlight standards. This is the same regulating agency that banned any headlight except round sealed beams of either 4-inch or seven-inch diameter until a few decades ago. Now, almost anything goes, as you can see on modern cars, but if you have an H4-style light, you can only use the bulb they approved for them.
The actual problem with higher-wattage H4 bulbs is that they will melt the socket area of your lights reflector if it's made of plastc, and I suspect they all are. Saabs' certainly are.
