I'm off to the parts store this evening to look for a tail lamp, so this is timely. I tried checking some auto parts sites so I could have the item number in hand when I went in, but I had no luck, so I just figured I'd match by sight.
The higher wattage will draw more current, but if you didn't blow a fuse with the 6W bulb, the only other concern is heat dissipation. Tail lights don't usually stay on long enough to create any real problem. If I find a 5W replacement, I'll come back and post the part number.
