Default Optilux Angeleyes questions

Ok, here’* the deal. I have a 2000 Bonne SSEi and just got a set of the Hella Optilux 2500 Angeleyes. The only difference I can see between the bulbs is that factory are 50 Watt 800 series bulbs and the Hella’* are 55 Watt H3 bulbs. My question is: Can I use my factory fuse, relay, and wiring for the optilux lights? In my view, I don’t see why I can’t because the optilux kit comes with a 15 amp fuse and relay and my factory fuse is also 15 amps. The only difference I can see is the 5 Watts of power. I would rather just use my factory fuse, relay, and wiring just for pure simplicity and also so my engine compartment isn’t cluttered with aftermarket wiring. If anyone has any ideas or thoughts about this, please get back to me..
Thanks
Derek

Sorry, for some reason, I guess I cant use appostrophies. Here is the message without all of those numbers in it.

I wouldnt see why not. I'm running the provided switch into the car, there'll be a few more switches joining it. Got a great location.
