BTW, Philips H9 bulbs are on Amazon right now for $7.41 a piece! I'm buying 4!
H9 are a 65W and the H11 are 55w. I thing the H11 are 1400 and the H9 are 2100 for output.

Oh and which brands are good? I have been seeing lots of suggestions for sylvania and Philips.
I am still running the bulbs that are shown in this DIY. I have had no issues with almost 2 years of running them. I have done long night drives with them on for over 5-6 hours strait. I just got the ones for a local autoparts place.
