Default Driving light bulb question.

Does the driving lights for the 90 SSE fit the 95 SSEi? I believe I have a new one for the 90 that I never used, and no longer have the car, but I need one for the 95?

I think the 95 needs an 880.

95 is 880, 90 SSE is a H3 bulb.

I guess the only way to check now is to remove it from the 95 and cross reference, but first I have to find out where I put the one for the 90. It was in a sort of orange and white box. Is that the Bosch brand?

Sorry..I don't have experience with those. Although many changed to silverstar 880'* and because of the higher heat in the assembly, they seemed to burn out quickly.

Stock driving light lenses are plastic. They may bubble and melt if you go too hot.

Just go aftermarket and run 50 or 100watt H3'*. In AFTERmarket lights. Mine were 30 bucks. I run 50watt H3'* on the SLE, and 100w H3'* on the Zilla. Much better reflector design, hardened glass lenses.

Cyberwhite Navigators. Available at your friendly Wal-Mart store.

I'm talking H3 in my AFTERMARKET lights. Factory/OEM lights aren't worth the time or money in upgrading the bulb.
