HID headlight bulbs question?
 
Bought these the other day. Apparently they're for my model and year, but I can't for the life of me see how they'll fit!

They're also meant to be a direct replacement ie just remove the stock ones and plug these in. I've contacted the seller but it's late here so I don't expect to hear back tonight.

Any ideas:confused: I was really looking forward to fitting these too. I bought some led licence plate bulbs from the same guy and they're awesome:thumbsup:, but these I just don't know.

I don't see at all how those would fit. Your stock are on the right correct? 9006?
on the left those look like h4, I had those stock in my galant, those are highs and lows in 1 bulb, where as your stocks have a seperate bulb for the highs and the lows. But yeah the bulbs you were sent aren't going to connect to your harness or fit in your socket.

Those aren't HID either. Whoever told you they were needs to be slapped around. They're regular old painted halogens.

Thanks guys:thumbsup:

I've got it all sorted out now. The guy will refund me for them and I've managed to source the correct ones along with sidelight bulbs

There seems to be a lot of these bulbs on ebay claiming to be for Jeep, but as far as I know (well now anyway), Jeep seem to use the same type of bulb.

FYI bulbs like that will decrease your light output

Yeah I found that out after reading up on them, the blue doesn't seem to be the way to go. I need to see where I'm going what with all the crappy Scottish weather and rogue deer on the roads!

I did manage to get the correct bulbs, but they're ice white as opposed to blue and I have to say I'm quite impressed. I've got pics and will upload them tonight hopefully.

Thanks Steve, I may just do that. I'm seriously considering investing in a kit now.
