if H11 fits the same, so it means you can use also H9 with slight mod. However from my past, I run these 160W bulbs from PIAA and I almost melted my wires!!! SO be careful with using these 55W or 65W bulbs as H8 is just about 35W....

From the point of lumens, you definitely wanna change your stock H8 bulb as it produces only 700lum,while
- new Philips H8 LED Xtreme Ultinon 2400Lum,
- HID rebased osram/philips 3200lum....
- H9 produces 2100Lum, 65W
- H11 is about 1250lum, 55W

If you have a lovely wife, sexy hot lover, cool car, no problems with the government and revenue authorities, and when you go out the sun always shines and all passers smile to you - common dude, say NO to drugs!

Yes sir!


That about sums it up pretty much and as Semco said, you'll want be careful with the amount of Watts to Heat in the wires and the fog lamp housing.

The LED lows look great! The phillips H8s are really expensive, I opted for DDM tuning's H8 bulbs which is about half the brightness of the Phillips but still brighter than halogen.

I bought the limited with ultimate package and got "downgraded" to HIDs. I just ordered new bulbs to upgrade to the 5500-6000k look. Plus, I ordered leds to replace every halogen light (from license to fogs) and should be posting in the next week or two when everything is installed.

Looking forward to that, it's also on my To-do list. Do you by any chance have the list of LEDs to order?

Sure thing, just a note I already have some LEDs from the ultimate package so this may not be a complete list. here's what I got so far to replace the remaining bulbs:

License plate: T10
Rear signal: 3156/3157
Interior Trunk Light: 31mm festoon
Backup light: T15
Front signal: 1157
Fog: H8 led
Headlight Low beam: D3S (I ordered HID, haven't found an led to replace)
batista317 and EpicKLF like this.
