Replace 3watt bulbs with 5watt (?) - 3rd brake light

Hey there,

Some bulbs on my 3rd brake light went off, so i must replace them. The bulbs that its using is 12volt 3W but currently i only have lots of 12volt 5W (same size).

Is it safe to plug them in or shall i order the 3W ones ?

Stick with 3W to avoid heat, bright spots or fuse issues.
