Break Light Bulb

I just replaced break light bulb with a 7506 long life. Says its a 25w instead of the 21w, like called out in manual. I'm i ok with this bulb? 2004/Base.



Many thanks.

Yes, will be a little brighter and burn a little hotter, but as it is a brake light is not on for long and so the extra heat should not be an issue. Might be a noticeable difference in brightness between the two brake lights though, if you care about that kind of thing

21w is the norm I don't think I have seen a 25w 7506 before.
