Don't do it. Those blue coated halogen bulbs reduce light output as does any type of bulb with an external coating. If your car is not a bi-xenon vehicle don't put HIDs in the inner beam highs (HIDs turned on and off repeatedly will kill the bulbs).

You can go with a hyperwhite upgrade like the Xenesis Tru Match Bulbs which are a direct replacement for the inner beams and fogs. These have a blue coating that emits a whiter color and have the same wattage as OE bulbs so you do not risk overheating or melting the factory housing.
