I’ve already heard the same from Prolightz on the 35w-55w recommendation. They say the 55w run hotter so ballasts will not last as long and neither will the bulbs. Its been a year with no issues so I’m not sure what I believe.No apologies necessary bud. I did call Prolightz on the phone and a representative named "Will" who I spoke with highly recommended I stay with the 35 watt ballasts vs the 55 watt. In his opinion the attrition rate with the 55 watt ballasts outweighed the benefits. Anything has to be better than stock. How much of a difference did you notice between the 35 watt and 55 watt ballasts? I also believe I'm going to change those fog lights with the hid plug in assemblies they offer.
It’s difficult to say the difference in 35w-55w because I changed the bulbs from 4500k to 5500k. That went from a yellower light to a brighter white light.
I can tell you this, that I notice a markable difference. And with the projectors in full open on high beam, there isn’t anything else I feel I need to do to my high beam 9145 bulbs.
I have the Morimoto XB LED fog lights that I swapped out for the OEM. I’m happy with those as well.
I wouldn’t put HID in the fogs. To much light is bad in a fog or driving snow situation.
