you guys know there's like 4 on each side
the ones on the very outer edge i think it's the high beam lol..

my frd told me to get the sylvania silver star or the cool blue
http://www.sylvania.com/ConsumerProducts/A...tar/default.htm

I think this is the wrong forum to post this question:

You can find your answer here.

Lots of people do not have good luck with Sylvania Silver star bulbs because they burnt out too fast. However, if you just use it as high beam I think it should be ok.. If you willing to spend a little more, I suggest to go with PIAA bulbs. My friends have them and I think it is very bright and looks good.

HID conversion kits ARE illegal as they are not DOT approved due to increased glare. OEM HID lights are okay of course.
