my fogs light I subbed are 45 watt, says right on the package and has the same connector etc an exact sub. 55 watt is 1 amp more in current but I guess its the heat inside the fixture and if the front is plastic and not glass away she goes.
It does not matter what vehicle you have these days if you go for brighter bulbs you stick with the same wattage and therefore just buying a more efficient light like the Platinum Nighthawks I have in my GC. Much brighter than their Xenon but same power. They don't make the harness to hand more current than its designed for and something will melt or burn out eventually.
