    Crespo, are you 100% sure they are 55 watts? I'm pretty sure BMW lights are fused at 15 amps and on 55 watt hids it takes over 8 amps per light when the ballasts ignite them, so 16+ amps going through a 15 amp fuse is cause for fuse blow.

    There 50watt mate. The exact kit in the link i posted, Its written on the ballasts.
    Not that its cast iron proof but it is written there.
    I didnt even know you could get 50watt to be honest, I always thought it was either 35 or 55.???
