Something I noticed on my OEM factory lights when I replaced the dims.
The lights bulbs I pulled out had 55W stamped on the bulb. When I opened the new bulbs, I noticed the new bulbs had 51W stamped on the bulb but the package said they were 55W. Pissed me off I wasn't really getting the original 55W bulbs and kind of wondered if I had bought them from Toyota, if I would have actually got a 55W bulb.
Anyway I bought the HIR bulbs instead for the dims.
