Update

Very satisfied after 3 weeks of use. They do illuminate more road and match my headlights now that I changed the bulbs there also. I also put 1 inch spacers last weekend which makes the car look more aggressive and helps a little with coming off the highway.

How hard is it to swap out the bulb? Do the wheels have to be removed?

Itís pretty simple. Just turn your wheel the whole way, remove the four bolts on the wheel well lining, pull it back and reach up in and swap out the bulb.

These are the bulbs I used, no resistors needed.

You used these for your DRLs?

Anyone have any suggestion for DRLs and actual head lights for an LED replacement... coming from stock Halogens in the 18 Sport.

Thanks!

Another question for anyone in here who may know... What is the fit size for the high beam? Is it 9005?
