Re: OEM HIDs???
Bulbs are 9006 and 4500 should be the closest match to OEM

Re: OEM HIDs???
its gonna be hard to get a perfect match becasue the headlights are projectors and the fogs arent....

Re: OEM HIDs???
You can change the color of the stock lights without changing the bulbs though to get them closer to matching. Thats what most people don't know.

If you bend the sheilds inside the projectors, you change where the color gets cutoff, so by bending it slightly towards the bulbs, you can normally get more color.

Re: OEM HIDs???
will that mess up the actual light output??? how far do you have to bend them

Re: OEM HIDs???
Just swap out the D1S bulbs while you're at it. Get a 5000k hid kit for your foglights and order some replacement 5000k D1S bulbs from the same company to ensure they match. I did that with my challenger's lights and the color matches even though the fog lights aren't projectors.
