Headlights

Hey guys I have a stupid question for you...been looking for some headlights for my 2007 Charger, I see the stock bulbs are 9005 & 9006XS, straight base. EVERY auto parts store or even HID kits don't show either bulb with a straight base.

With all that said does it make a difference if it hasna straight base or not?

Well i dont know exactly what a "Straight base" is but i can assure you that a 9006 with fit the Lo beam and H10 will fit the Foglights. period.


go over to DDMtuning.com and get your self some HID's, 9006 for the LOs and H10 for the fogs, make sure to get the error code elminiators (15.00) from them also, or else your HIDS wont be performing the way you want them to

Yes it makes a difference. The tunnel leading to the headlight bulb will not accommodate a 90 degree base.

Any place I've gone does not carry the straight base. I'm assuming this is a dealer or online order only. I wanted to do something brighter, they bust balls in New Hampshire come inspection time, when you install HIDs in a stock housing. Troopers around here eat that up, only doing there job though!
