HID kit 55w vs 35w whats the difference?

Thinking a out changing out the halogen on my CS valence on my 11 GT but don't know the difference between the 35w and 55w kit. Does it make a difference on the voltage this car is supposed to use??

the 55 watt will produce more heat, and could create issues with the surrounding plastic, is my understanding.

I don't want them to be super bright, just want them to match my headlights... So I guess 4300k 35w will work??

Thats what I am doing as well, not looking to blind anyone, just a match to the LED daytime driving lights, I am ordering the 35 4300k HID kit.

55w is brighter than 35w. I have 8000k 55w in mine for years and they're perfect with no issues.

35w is about 2100-2500 lumens...55w on average is 4100-4500 lumens. Ive run both 35w and 55w in my head and fog lights with no issue

Ok that's good to know, didn't know that one is brighter than the other. So 35 is the way to go for me, as I'm trying to replicate the stock look
