No, 9006 is the same as HB4, which is different. H4 was what was used in 6th gen and older Civics. It has two filaments- one for the low beam and another for the high beam.

You need bulbs, ballasts, and the wiring to connect them. Some kits include a wiring harness that acts as an electrical buffer between the wiring for your ballasts and the vehicle wiring. That way, if you have an electrical problem, it's isolated to the relay rather than to the rest of the vehicle.

ahh. thx 4 the info! i know 8th gen civic coupe has h11 fogs, now in terms of the blub size, how much mod (if possible) to change a 9006 into a h11? it's pretty much the blub plug socket that is different right? cuz i want to get plug and play HID low beam 9006 for now, and when i save up enough, do a retro on the low beam and switch this plug and play HID into the fog...
