Sylvania Silver Star (not the ultra) should be fine. Bulb type 9005.

To be honest with you, what I would do is go to your favorite part store and buy a set of Silver Start Ultra for the low beam (9006) and a set of Silver Star for the high beam (9005). This will cost you about $90 and should saitsfy your road lighting needs. If you really want HID though, find a set you think you'll comfortable with off eBay and put them in the low beam slot (9006), and wait to buy new high beam bulbs. I know of a lot of people who don't need to use the high beams because they put in HIDs and they were so much brighter than the factory high beams.

Hi,

In my opinion OSRAM headlight bulb these are frequent winner in bulb test in auto express magazine or you can use Philips headlight bulbs they use quartz glass these are much more durable than standard bulb.
