Default 55w or 35w

okay so im looking at these HIDs
http://www.hidkits.net/p4-Apexcone-R...5w-or-55w.html
and im just wondering if it would be worth the extra 15 bucks to just go 55w or not... im gonna get 8000K for sure because i like the blue tint to them. but im just wondering what u all thought about choosing the 55w or 35w

Thanks

55w will be too bright for headlights. Trust me. 35w is 100x brighter than stock to begin with. I put 55's in my off-road lights because they're off when I'm in traffic.

They're Explorer Pro Comp 6" lights that used to have 130w halogens.
