9005 bulbs are in the highbeam 9006 are in the lows.

The 9005's are what swap directly into the OEM fogs

9145 is what is in our fogs stock. A 9005 bulb will interchange with it.

9145 bulb is less watts than a 9005, so a lot of people upgrade to the 9005 bulb to get ALOT more light.

But when it comes down to hid kits, no matter what size bulb you buy, the brightness will be the same, but a 9005 hid kit is going to be alot easier to find than a 9145.

Well I'm confused...are we talking about fog lights here? Hi & low beams?
I might be interested in going to HID in both fogs and headlights if it isn't too pricey.

Ozzie, you can get a quality HID kit for around a hundred bucks a set.

I spent $200 and got high and low beams. The quality of light is no comparrison to regular incandescent bulbs. Night and day difference.

Yeah they're all 4300's...Pure white...Anything higher is a waste of money cause you're losing actual light output.

Nick, where did you get yours, or where is a good place to get them? Are they complicated to install? I did the "all on" but I would like a little more.

When you go HID's, you'll get ALOT more...You'll wonder why you waited so long.

I'm not posting the link because we do have vendors here who sell kits. Igot mine from ebay. Numerous members here have had excellent luck with them so far as well. I'm at work on the clock so I cant help you with the link untill I get home. I'll pm it to you later. Sorry.

Yes, you'll need 2 9005 Kits (1 for High Beams 1 for Fogs) and 1 9006 Kit for the Low Beams.

And as Unit said, I myself, also would not go above 4300k.
