I think it has to do with the 9005 bulb having a coating on the end of the glass capsule, which the 9006 bulb does not.jmckell said:
Nah, other way around. The 9006 is the low beam, and 9005 is high. You can use 9005 in both though, some are afraid that the 9005 in both may be to bright, but I figure that it can't be any brighter than my D2S HID's that I have in my 9006 socket.paulo57509 said:

In practice, the 9005 bulb is used for the low beam; the 9006 for the high beam.
I have put the 9005 in for 9006 bulbs and it is bright. I have lowered the projection angle down so it will not blind anyone.Nile Legend said:if you put the highbeam in the low, is it really too bright (like getting pulled over)? or just brighter then the low was originally?
Read the post by LegendGS above. That is exactly what the tutorial at Legend Tuner was attempting to do. The reason why 9006 was used is because the low beam 9006 has aftermarket ion yellow bulbs, while there is/was at that time no ion or yellow 9005 bulbs.assmaster said:has anyone put yellow bulbs in the high beams? how is it done? i think i have seen it somewhere before
