one has the tip covered to reduce light that would go stright forward into an oncomming drivers eyes, and the tabs are a bit different.

and normally the high beam one is 65 watts and the low beam 55

did it to our car over a year ago, love the light i have now and NO one has flashed there lights at us yet and we do a lot of night driving (over 200 miles last night in light to heavy fog). you do get more light, a 9005 bulb has 70% more lumens than the 9006 (1700 lumens vs 1000 lumens). HID has 3200 lumens. this site has good pic'* of how to do the mod
