H4.....9003.........HB2 all three of them are our bulb types all of them are the same:D

I dont think they make silverstars in H4 format. I wish....they look nice on 9006. Very very bright. You can try philips vision plus or sylvanias xtravision.

H4.....9003.........HB2 all three of them are our bulb types all of them are the same I was under the impression that they are not the same. If you were to get true 9003's, they will not have both filaments for regular and high-beams.

Yes and No. The 9003 bulbs will fit our Civics but the H4 bulbs wont fit into "9003" housings due to the fact that the 9003 bulbs have shorter "tabs" on the bulb itself. The 9003 will fit ours becaue ours take the H4 or HB2 which have slightly longer "tabs" There is a total of three "tabs" on the base of our bulbs if you have looked at one. That is the only reason I said 9003 for ours is the same because it does fit. Yes they do have low/high beams. Some bulbs that I have bought for my older civic even said 9003 on them. As in getting the "true" 9003s I think the only differences were just the tabs. I could be wrong. I have only based this on the fact that Ive bought 9003/HB2 bulbs before and have worked with low/high beams.

I had silver-stars on my Mx-6 and they were substantially brighter than stock. Very white with low beam and slight blue with high.
