5th Gen Hi and Lows the same?

I am about to buy a new pair of xenon gas filled light bulbs on ebay but when I looked up the size it said that both the hi and low beams were H1-55ws. Does that mean the high beam and low beam are the same exact light bulb and that I just need to purchase two separate pair of the exact same bulb?

You need to purchase 2 separate pairs.

Like everyone else said, they are different. I believe you need H1's and H3's.

NOPE......

The Headlight bulbs are both H1.
I can't remember if they are different on the
4th gens, I used to have one, but never had
to change them out.

Later !!!
