No problem. That's why we are here and why this is one of the best forums on the internet. Lots of help and experience here, with little or no judgement.

Check out this thread. Replaced mine with these and a LED headlight bulb and I’m pretty happy with it. Keep in mind that the factory bulbs are rated at 25W each so if you start going higher in wattage it may potentially overheat your ignition switch and give you issues because the wiring for the driving lights runs through the ignition switch if it came from the dealer as an add on. If you already have them on a separate relay then you should be good, if not then watch the wattage.
This is the main reason I went LED.
