I have a really stupid question, but better safe than sorry. I ordered XENON HALO lightbulbs for my ride, but now want to order xenon or any kind of HID light that looks the same for the HI-Beam. Is this the same bulb as the regular headlight or do I have to look for a specific bulb for the hi-beam bulb

the high beam bulb is the same as the lows, also. it's the H1 and is not a special bulb. and the HID light would be a kit, so it sounds like you are looking for a bulb that is the same color as HID? just curious, cause there's a BIG difference in quality and price.

Just to let you know, those "HID" lights are not really HID. They are just blue bulbs and are WAY too dim in my opinion. I have tried a good 6 different pair in my old accord. Some did look dope but the light output on the road blew a$$.
The only bulbs that are proven in a light tunnel to produce more light are the Philips "Vision +50" and Osrams "Silver Star" and both of these are only sold to the UK market and are not DOT approved, but can be imported or found on E-bay as well. I have the Visions oin my low beam and I can tell you there is a big difference. I forgot I installed them and got in after not driving for a week, and the light output took me by suprise. They are not blue like you may be after but are a much brighter white that is closer (but no where near as bright) to OEM HID bulbs.
