City Bulb help - Which bulb to use?

Hey guys, got a set of aftermarket/smoked headlights and they come with a 4th opening for the city driving bulb under the high beam. Not sure if that is the correct name for it, it's what we called them on the VW's when I had one. Wiring I can figure out based on some posts about it on older Civics, but not sure the bulb size on the 06-11 Civics. Thanks for any help or links to posts.

I had to google it to try to see what you mean, and I think I found a few pictures of what youíre talking about. If itís what Iím thinking, thereís a good chance it could take the stock front turn signal bulb. If this doesnít fit, try some of the other exterior bulbs. Look at the bulb sheet I attached below and try swapping each of these bulbs into the socket. This way, you donít hassle with guessing which one it is, and end up buying the wrong one. Thereís a good chance itís one of the ones on the list, but of course it can also be a size thatís not on there. In that case, Iím not sure what to suggest. Maybe someone else can chime in.

W5w

I have a set of aftermarket headlights also, on the back of the headlight assembly it says W5W. So I bought two W5W plugs/wiring harness and bulbs. My problem is that I would like to use that as another turn signal on the front like some newer vehicles have but I don't know how to wire it so that the bulb is only on when the turn signal is blinking.

Thanks! Yeah, that is the bulb and then I found the harness for it too. I am having my body shop wire that bulb to my daytime running lights. The harness and socket I got wasn't the best, so they are going to silicone it in so its at least water tight
