you whould have to buy the HID 9006 Kit for your Low beams, and they would work. Fuddyduddy had a Set on is 93 SSEi and Smellbird has a set on his 98 SLE. Your DRL'* are the High Beam bulb

You should disable the DRL'* before you put the HID in. Also keep in mind retorfit kits are not street legal in the US.

Well i know earlier models were low beam such as Smellbirds.

Do low beams stay on, with highs in the 00+? That'* nice to have so you're now power cycling them when you flash other motorists (or don't flash).
