It will work on any car accepting H9s - and in this case it's ~500 more raw lumens of light. You can't beat physics

As a side note, one has to remember when considering bulb upgrades is that at the, end it is (pretty much) only lumens that count. Allt he hypergigawhite 100W=10W, often seen in advertising, POS bulbs is total bovine excrement. If you can't find the output in lumens, don't buy.

As for LEDs - they're still far from matching the output of fully blown halogen headlamp bulb filaments (asides from dedicated LED lamps which often use an array of LEDs). Not to mention that since many LEDs are used on one "bulb", the beam pattern becomes completely coo coo, if you do a direct replacement.
