Any idea which ones for the lows.
They all say fog light LoL
The low beams are H11. These are the ones I had run on mine. They are 1:1.

High beams are 9005 size bulbs. They have a different connector.

Fog lights are also H11 - H8 but are lower lumens and lower wattage like these.

for reference, in Canada there is a law on how bright your lights can be. I candela is as it sounds, the brightness of 1 candle.
So you get a 300 candle birthday cake to drive by legally.

don't ask for conversions to other reference points such as lux and lumens. those get so confusing with distance requirements etc. I'm just simply pointing out that there is a limit by which the police can enforce too bright of headlights. It can be a danger to others, even if it benefits you in those short sighted goals. (pun intended)
(not that I expect a banned person to reply) but... 300 candela is not the light output limit but is measurement that no more than four lighted lamps projecting a beam can exceed. Based on just that clip of the code, you can have 4 100,000 candela lights on without issue. Any additional indicators, markers must be =< 300 candela.

The full requirements:
Lamps Required On All Motor Vehicles Sect 62 (ontariohighwaytrafficact.com)

Converted to AlphaRex projectors and never looked back. Stock headlights were absolute dogshit. They're DOT approved. Projector anddddd they're on sale.

Also added BajaDesigns amber fogs - 10/10 would recommend. The wide beam is epic.

However these options are way more expensive than swapping out to an LED bulb.
I just wish they would get rid of that not required amber reflector on the side of their light or make it optional.
