There are two ways to do it. Both of which can be found via the search button or by....oh, I don't now...asking a local.

I gotta do this to my car too. I drive so much that my Silverstars only lasted me 7 months. One cold night, both bulbs crapped out on me and I was driving around with just foglights

Is this the same process for 04's?

Are you talking about the Sylvania Silverstars? If so, try the Osram Silverstars next time from danielsternlighting.com

Osram is the parent company of Sylvania. However, the bulbs are not the same. Sylvania Silverstars are sold in the US market only and are marketed as "superwhite" type bulbs. They have a blue coating and like other bulbs with similar coatings do not actually produce more usable light than OEM bulbs. Osram Silverstars on the other hand, are sold only in Europe and (unfortunately) not through regular retail channels in the US although they are available through some vendors such as Daniel Stern Lighting who import them. These are true upgrade bulbs which do produce increased usable light output at stock wattage, and with no blue coating. There is no comparison between the two.

So there is no blue coating on the bulbs but do they look whiter than stock bulbs at least? I checked out their web site and it looks like they do have H1's and H3's for my low beam and foglights respectively, that's cool. I'm not too worried about my 9005's (high beams) because I'm using other bulbs for that. I'd just like something brighter for the low beams as long as they look white and not yellow

I always have my low beams on, had the car for 30k km, no burnt out bulb yet. I think removing the DRL is stupid, but go ahead just as long as you arnt one of these dumbasses who drive in a snowstorm with no lights on

I agree, that IS stupid to drive without lights on during rain or snow. I don't think removing DRL is stupid though. They should prolong the life of the bulbs so doing that can only help
