Are you both telling me that either one of those has the black tip on the bulb? If so then I must of gotten a pair that the black tip was missing.

negative.

9145 is the factory bulb size. yes other bulbs will fit..but just buy whats designed for it.

in fairness though..i think i used 9005

Isn't 9005 a Halogen bulb ? OP is looking for HID.
9005 is a bulb size, or base type.

I know of three light sources for 9005, halogen, HID and LED.

Same goes with 9006, 9145 and so on.

However, technically they are not legal. So you are right in a legality way. 9005, 9005, 9145 and so on a halogen only by the law's point of view.

D1S is the legal hid for low beam. D2S maybe for high beam, but I am not sure.

technically walking across the street to my neighbours house is j-walking and illegal.
technically using your neighbours wifi is illegal
technically ripping the coax filter out of your cable tv box is illegal which gives you all the cable tv channels.

bottom line...everyone does it. and its not the HID's that are illegal, its the bulb colour and the aim.
