Default Trying out new bulbs

As far as I know my bulbs are all original, had one go out on the way to Ames (why my fogs were not on in the pics) So, for $45 shipped (for all 3) I decided to try these



9005, 9006, and 893'*

Got them from www.xenonlightshid.com, they have a 90 day warranty/satisfation guarantee

If they are horse ****, oh well.
