No you will bit hurt anything. Supposedly there is a slight difference in the base of the bulb that may or may not need to be filed down to get it to lock into the light housing

safe for the housing and safe for the wires. there is a slight bit more amperage at start up but then it drops. you will get better results if you use a relay harness as you will be bypassing the cars harness and will be using larger wires and will be connected to the battery and not a computer board. your factory wires plug into a relay and control the lights that way. the relay only takes a fraction of the power the stock bulbs did. you can find the relay harnesses on ebay for next to nothing.

i am running 55watt hid lights off of my factory harness no problem and have been for 3 years

Was wrong Its actually 35w Hid which is better i think because the same like halogen was , :) i think will be not a problem then,only i hope the bulb will easy lock up in housing, and i think is easy to install H11 HID,was watching some videos about it ,and i got a relay in the package. :) Thanks.
