HID Upgrade to 55W

I see on different sites on the net that some people with other model vehicles have upgraded their 35W D3S hid systems to 55w systems. Has anyone tried that and if so how did it work out?

I've not done exactly what you describe, but I've run 35 and 55 watt HID systems in several vehicles, including motorcycles, and my experience has been that there's no perceptible difference. Any HID is SIGNIFICANTLY better than halogen *in the right reflector* - not all headlight assemblies are suitable, but I don't think upgrading OEM HID systems from 35 to 55 watts would be beneficial.
