    Oh, thanks...

    I'm about to put an order in for my HID's at ddmtuning.com, it gives me an option to either get 35Watt or 55Watt... was wondering, the low beam are 9005 and the fogs are H3 Bulbs....which wattage should i get?

    2 Bottom of Door when you open - 906 bulb... is that 194 in led?

    btw...as a side note:
    ...you can get smoked "repeater lamps" (...the little "clear-white" turnsignal on the fender...this is not a "side marker")...

    ...the original white/clear repeater lamps are GM's 1998 - 2005 Opel/Vauxhall/Holden Astra G and 99 -05 Opel/Vauxhall/Holden Zafira A parts, which Cadillac used for its 05 -11 Sigma-based Cadillac STSs...(...they are also used on the export Corvette C6... )

    ...and for the Opels here in Europe there are legal smoked repeater lamps available/on the market...

    ...left: Cadillac/Opel OEM and on the right: Opel aftermarket


    ...installed on my car...:

    ...well...e.g. Ebay (Europe/Germany)...prices and quality depend on the manufacturer and seller...some parts are very dark tinted, some less, some need a 194NA bulb or amber W5W, some a normal/clear 194/W5W (amber filter in the housing)
    ...from 10.00 Euros (approx. 13.00 US-$) for a set up to 35.00 Euros (46.00 US-$)...

    ...swap was easy...plug and play...all you need is a flat-bladed (plastic or wooden) tool or a screwdriver...its only clipped in...

    example:
