Any brighter parking light bulbs available?

Hi all,

I was just wondering if the '05 dual parking light bulbs could be changed to some more powerful units?
I'm not looking for any halogen applications let alone HIDs but I thought maybe some 15 - 20 watts instead of the 5 watt wimpy glass bulbs could give a bit better triangle light effect. I know the stock bulbs are available in 2 and 5 watts on this side of the pond but I thought since everything is so big in America maybe you guys have also the "beefed-up" parking light bulbs available over there...
Or maybe the whole bulb socket needs to be changed. And of course the air space in this parking light compartment is not very large so adding the lamp power radically could reform the reflector etc.

Any thoughts or experience...

4-LED Wedge Bulbs

There are a variety of 4-LED Wedge bulbs available, in white or amber. I put an amber bulb in my GS and it was a noticeable improvement !
