    PIAA bulb..?? for the electricians out there

    I've recently replaced 1 of my headlight bulbs with a PIAA ion amber crystal bulb(gives off a nice amber hue) which is brighter than stock. Stock is 45/45W and PIAA is 60/55W. The question i have is because I've replaced only 1 light will that cause any imbalance in the electrical system. Is it better to replace both... The bulb is awesome but ain't too cheap either ($45) so if I can get away with only using one.. there's no need to get a second.

    Any info. would be greatly appreciated.

    Nope, unless the total combined wattage draws more current than the loom can handle (reasonable chance of that, btw), having headlights of different wattages isn't likely to be a problem, although it might get you some attention from Vancouver's Finest.

    Nope, you're only drawing just over an extra amp so I reckon the wiring will cope with that.
