One is a H9 Bulb, the other is H11



Can you tell which?

I've left the fogs alone, I rarely use them and unsure of the cut-off...Nothing bothers me more than someone that improperly puts bulbs in a housing that does nothing but glare (ie..HID retrofit kits in halogen housings)

Yes sir....its ones of the easiest/best upgrades to the H11. I still cannot figure out why they made the H9 and H11 so close in specs.

And the great thing is they are just the regular H9 bulb....nothing special ...you could try a colored bulb, but coloring the glass on a bulb reduces the light output for a color change (its a filter). As you move up the color scale past the 4k range, the amount of lumens (true light output) goes down. These are 2150lumens, vs the 1350 of the H11.

Looking at the picture that I posted of my lights I don't like the look of the parking lights in their ambient look between the headlights and the orange......

V-Leds makes something that is called a switchback....not sure if they have our application or not, but its white until you turn the blinker on, then its amber

Yes....I'm pretty sure its yellow bulb for parking, and not amber plastic over a white bulb.

But i'm not 100% sure the parking is used as the blinker as well now that I think of it

You have to test that out....I'm several hundred miles away from mine lol

Yeah I would like to get away from that Amber look. I wouldn't mind it for the turn signal but now looking at it above the head light I don't like the Amber color at all...

Did I mention that i do not like the Amber color above my headlights?

It honestly appears to be the best way to upgrade the headlights in an affordable manner..
