    Put in a set of 9005 Nokia hyper yellow in place of the OEM brights. Nice difference. On a dark winding road, normally the OEM brights light up road ahead of you. With the hyper yellow's, the road AND surrounding trees light up for a satisfying almost daylight effect. image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    I have the same bulbs in the high beams. The yellow color contrasts great with the hid low beams.

    I use yellow 9005 bulbs for my highbeams/DRLs as well. Hardly ever use highbeams, but I like the yellow DRLs better than the orangish color clear bulbs have when in DRL mode.

    I have Nokia hyper yellow H11 bulbs in my foglights. The extra contrast is good for rainy conditions.

    Are the high beams OEM 65w, or 55w?

    Correct, 9005 halogen are 65w. Though I currently have yellow 42w H10 halogen bulbs fitted in my highbeams on both cars. I had to trim down one of the three tabs on the base of the H10 bulbs to get them to fit in the 9005 mounting holes, but I like the darker yellow color the low wattage bulbs put out for DRL use. I almost never use my highbeams, so I went with DRL functionality over highbeam brightness.
