    Has anyone tried the trick where you mod a 9011 halogen bulb to fit our 9005 high beam sockets?

    Apparently it’s a much brighter bulb that runs at the same wattage as our oem bulb.

    I have, did this in my 80 years ago and did it in the 4R. Doesn't match my HID low beam color but that is a don't care. Worth it IMO.
