9007 for the headlights. 9145 for the fogs. Or if you want to upgrade get the 9005 for the fogs. I had to take a dremel and take maybe 1/4" off the left tab.

I can only find the ones that just say Silver star. I have not seen anything around here that says Ultras on them.

What tab? Is it on the bulb or the light? Can you go back to the stock bulb number if you get too much cop hassle?

Thanks

Why not just go HID.. H10/9145 - 3000 - 4300k and call it a day.. they will be brighter than any halogen you put in no matter if you go 9145 or 9005

sweet I just made that switch with the 9007 heads & 9005 fogs! soo much better and so much brighter and finally my heads & fogs match! I love it! Also with the 9005 fog mod it was simple I just took some sidecutters cut the tab that needed to be trimmed and well one tiny snip and the piece flew off and then I simply installed it! thanks for the tips looks good

Not if you hold the bulb socket with a pair of pliers. I've done about 5 sets of bulbs this way. No problems. Dremel FTW.

I had the ultras. They are awesome. My only complaint is they burnt out after a year.

So a sheriff flashed you for assuming you had high beams on, but when you corrected him, he pulled you over?

That's stupid. I bet had you not flashed him, he probably would have turned around and pulled you over anyway.

I asked a cop up here if it was legal to flash somebody, and they said yes. So I don't see why flashing somebody back is a problem, especially if they wait to flash you until the last second (WHICH IS GAY!).

yeah that is lame, i have been flashed by a cop before and i flashed him back and he went on his merry way. only issues ive had is at stop lights or drive throughs when im behind cars, my lights shine right into there back windows, that pisses people off sometimes lol.
