Hey guys,

1) I just bought some new PIAA headlight bulbs for my 00 Civic EX, and I looked at the order sheet and it says that they are H4's. I obviously dont know much about bulb sizes, but is H4 the size that fits in my car? Because I coulda swore it was h3... but then again what do I know

2) I was out driving in the country and a Civic decided to pass me (it was pouring down rain, he was insane) when he got in front of me he flashed his hazards (stupid ricers thinking I was racing) anyways he had white turn/hazards and it looked so sweet in the dark. however I know that was ilegal so I was going to put red, well I just got the red bulbs the other day and it's not bright at all and they kinda look orange. I dunno what to do now, I want to do white but I know I cant.. so what do you guys suggest.. considering I dont like the amber colored and want something that makes my car a little nicer.

rear hazards, or front hazards. rear would just be red due to the lens wouldnt it. and as far as the front...amber is the only way to be safe.

Front would stay Amber, but no the rear ones would not be red because it’s the taillights that are half red and half clear. Right down the center. Like most that you find on the SI. The taillights are like this on the 2000 model ex anyways…

Okay I know the turn signals are 1157, but I know the brake lights are different because they are wedged... I wanted to put LED's in my brake lights also... Thanks for the idea Sick...
