Question HID Headlights

I bought my 04 PT Cruiser in Feb, the previous owner had after market HID headlights put in. Long story short, I Need to replace the ballast & Bulb. I bought replacement parts. I think the ballast in there now is a 35w and I bought a 55w. Before I take the whole car apart to replace it, do you think it will work? Or do I need the 35w ballast/bulb replacement? Any suggestions?

since you run with a first gen i don't think you would have a problem but i say do some trial and error. plug them in see if they work, if they don't, reverse polarity on the bulb socket. if that doesn't work then you might need a relay.
if it does turn on start up the car and make sure they don't flicker or turn off. after that i can't help you lol
i have a 2nd gen with a can-bus system and i need a relay to make mine work and i'm strapped for ideas.
