Halogen Watts are no different to Tungsten Watts , it's the total wattage that is relevant. 35 Watt dip or high , + 5 Watt tail + 21 Watt brake light = 61 Watts . Then there is occasional horn use , but of no practical consequence . As long as you don't sit with the brake light on for long periods when the other lights are on it will be fine.
Another option and one I have seen discussed on this forum is to go HID headlight. These give more light for less power than a 35 watt Halogen.
They do not use less power than a 35 watt halogen! 35 watts is 35 watts in any money, but they do give more light than a 130 watt halogen for the same power consumption as a 35 watt anything !
