Default Headlight swap

Hey fellas! I searched high and low and couldn't find the specific answer I was looking for.
I have the Black Express group with the bi-function halogen projector headlights. I don't want to invest the money in HID. but would like something cooler looking.
So I found some SilverStar zXe's. They make the lights LOOK like HID, but arent. I suppose it's like buying a Fauxlex watch
Here's the question: Which lights will I need for low, hi, and fog?

Hi - 9005
Low - 9012 HIR2
Fog - 9006

A few members here have modified the 9006 bulbs to fit into the low beam housing. A simple google search should come up with how to modify the 9006 to fit.

sorry but the output of the silverstars will still be garbage compared to an HID kit if you are actually looking for Usable light. And especially with the price of HID kits now a days, i don't understand why anyone would stick with regular halogen bulbs, especially when silverstars cost more than HID kits now. I have HID in my factor projectors and they are sick.

I agree..no comparison to hid imo. I use the white hid's in mine (5k I believe?) and love em. Just as long as you stay away from the ricer colors!
