I went with the 35w system just because the factory lights were halogen and I was not sure if the wiring could handle the extra juice.

The factory halogens are 55w so I really dont think the wiring would be strained at all..:)
I would recommend to stick with 35w. The 55w ballasts generate more heat. And you never know if the aftermarket housing will be able to handle the 55w HID bulb without melting the housing over the time. I would stay on the safe side. Besides 35w HIDs output lots of light!! :)
