I'll give those a try, Terra...time for new bulbs anyway, I think...as I've also read that halogens get duller over time. You happen to know if that's true?
In theory they shouldn't get dimmer, but in reality they do lose some brightness over time. 65W vs 55W... it shouldn't be an issue.

If you do decide to eventually get HIDs, you could always move the 65W bulbs to the highbeam spot.
