    AFAIA the Vectra lights are rated for 35w, I would think that 50w might too much and possibly cause problems with the light plastics and also throw up an error within the canbus system.

    I could be wrong though.

    ive got a 35w with 6k bulbs in my old banger pre facelift sri, as some one said 50w is too much for the pre facelift, as facelift as different type of wiring,????? they work great anyway.

    The first thing to remember is that H.I.D's work different to normal bulbs,there's no glowing filament, so the heat produced is less for either 35 or 55 watt compared to a normal bulb,also if the kit is a decent one the start up current shouldn't be any different for either wattage.The canbus system wont see any difference either, as all it see is the electronics correcting the lack of load from the "missing" bulb. I had a 55w 5000k kit in my vec and had no problems with the h/lights getting too hot,fuses going or error messages on the dash,just an amazing amount of light that didn't dazzle or blind other drivers.
