Some questions...

I am looking to order the chrome bulbs (chrome but flashes amber) for the two front corners. I noted on an ordering site that there are two models: 1156 and 7057. Does anyone know which one I need?

Also, I am looking to upgrade my two HID bulbs to something brighter. Currently, I believe they are stock, are really dull. They both are on, but just not bright enough. Which model do I need? And, are there any good install instructions with pictures?

It's best to check your factory bulbs but you most likely have the 7507s. To check, take out the factory bulbs and look at the metal pin offset on the base of the bulb. If they are 150 offset- 7507, if they are 180 offset-1156.

For your stock xenons, you can upgrade the color to a 6000k or 8000k with a set of our D2S Bulbs. It is difficult to get any brighter than the factory 4300k but these do upgrade the color to a more white light output.
