My 02 uses 9007 headlights. I think all the +99 use them too. The 9004 has a different base and will not fit into your headlight housing.

4000-7000 what?

4000-7000 what?

I think me might mean color Temp.

4000K had more of a yellow tint to it, 5200or 5300 is daylight 6000 Is more of a Blue/white 7000K Is Blue/Vilot 8000K is more of a Vilot/ Purple and of course 12000K looks pink, to me anyways.

Usualy when you start getting into the higher K ranges you are looking at HID's

This is 6000K

Actually the difference I noticed between 9004 and 9007 is that the filiment is positioned different. If the 9004s would fit in the 99+, the beam of the light may be way off.

1500K is what most factory halogens are

4100k is what comes standard in ALL OEM HID housings. You will never see a Caddy, BMW, Mercedes, etc. use anything other than a 4100k (I think some may use 4300k) bulbs. This will be the brightest you get.

The higher you go in the scale the less light you get. 4100k IS! the brightest you can get.
