They will go in but the base clearance is a little different. Most of the time, they can be jiggled into place although some owners have said that they needed to file them slightly. As with all Q-H bulbs, do not touch the glass surface.

i have had the 9005's in since 2001. the first time i installed them was a little tricky. but, after the first set, the others (when they burned out) were easy. nothing like 65 watts vs 42!

i'm not sure u might have 9145's i think i tried on my friends and it woule not fit the connector.

pull out your bulb u have now should just twist out or a ring that twists and check the bulb #on it. should be on the back part in white letters

i'm thinking about getting some hella goldstars. it's a yellow 9005 bulb. and when i say "yellow" i mean "yellow" not a bulb that has some faint yellow tint on it.
