I got the 9005 high-beams yesterday. Both the bulbs and plugs were tougher than expected to get seated but the output is impressive. Look forward to road testing them and will post an update.

I have a 06' so the fogs will probably output light better with your projector style

I actually rolled the dice and ordered them anyway. They work very well with the projector fogs! Of course now, the high beams look stupid because they are so yellow in comparison, that Iím going to do those too now. Also did the amber DRL/turn bulbs and they work and look awesome as well. A lot of money for all these bulbs but Iím very pleased with the results so far!

Needless to say, not concerned whatsoever. Will post when they burn out as promised.
Any possibility the heat warnings are related to bulb temps inside the housings? When confirming my new high beam LEDs were working, I could feel heat well out in front of them.

Temps of the headlight lens were at ambient both at 5 mins and 10 mins while testing the DRL’s. No change in lens temp. Again, not concerned whatsoever. You folks want to wait a year or two before these bulbs blow out be my guest. Will update when they blow out.

Not sure if you had this problem, but my original sockets were burned by the heat from the halogen bulbs, so I donít expect these to be any worse than that. Even the sockets I had replaced maybe 8 months ago,were already showing signs of heat (turning brown) when I took them out to install the LEDs. Iíll be keeping an eye on them, but halogens get super hot, and since those fit into a small, shallow part of the headlight, there isnít much air space around them which is probably why you could feel the heat. Did you ever try to feel them prior to changing the bulbs? I didnít, but chances are good they were just as hot, if not worse.

I got LED lights for all the head lights. Only thing I don't like is the fog light isn't bright enough. I might do some sanding on the fog light assembly as it does kind of look a bit fogged out.

Hey, I tend to be overcautious, no question. But my experience has been that product warnings range from strictly a legal CYA on one end to where the item will cause serious damage if the warning isn't followed on the other. Using these as DRLs is very likely toward the CYA end but that remains to be seen.

I really appreciate your time and effort in taking the temps. What we don't know is what those temps will be when someone's on a road trip and the DRLs are on for 10-12 hours straight except for brief stops. I'll be interested to see how these do over time and will definitely be getting them if they don't cause you any problems.

Understandable. There is only so much I can do and obviously no one knows how these will hold up 10-12 hours constant on. I would imagine itís the same as or very similar to running the parking lights, (194 LEDís), always on. There are tons of folks on this forum that swapped their parking lights to LEDís. I have yet to read about any problems.

Agree. You've been great about answering questions and getting the temps and so on and that is much appreciated.

My gut feeling is that these will work fine and I'll end up getting them and wishing I had done it earlier.

I think OP has started a trend. I ordered low, high, fog, and backup replacements.

I can't say i think they are spectacular, but all have been a decent upgrade. No problems yet.

Haven't recieved my fogs yet. Will post back after.

So I got the H11 lows and they work fine. I also got the 9005 high beams and plugged them into my (2006 stock) headlamps but they did not work. Any ideas as to why?

Reversed polarity. Pull the LED plugs out of the OEM harness, rotate the plug 180 and reinstall. Do not put the bulbs back into the housing until you get them to fire up.

Thanks! Not my first choice but the Nautical Blue Metallic is the only blue I would consider.
