yes those will work and are very very bright. Its so bright theres a warning label on most of them saying not to look directly into the led disks.

I have no idea what light they will put to the ground tho. Getting brighter bulbs is one thing but most of the time they dont light up the ground well but are brighter than stock.

They also make this in h11 bulb size which is what size my projectors are. If i didnt have my awesome hid's i would try these led's out.

dont factroy lights use the whole bezel? these shine straight forward and factory bulbs shine all around and reflects it. these will more than likely be like using flash lights for headlights. 2 bright spots and not flooded.
we tried the led tail lights and they were garbage cause the shined straight out. just made a dot on the lense. but hell leds are pretty cool though!!

If your exhaust tip is larger than your cylinder bore, then you are a Ricer.

There's no way this is DOT approved...

These LEDs are nowhere near as bright as a halogen bulb; I would not want to find myself out after dark with them.

Cool, yeah. But no way they're bright enough to use on the street.

Look at this:

http://www.lrc.rpi.edu/programs/soli...rdLighting.pdf

50 high output leds to equal the lighting of one 9006 bulb...

Check out the difference with xenon bulbs...

I might buy a set; but I won't be using them for my car...
