Default Another Headlight Question

I am going to replace my 07 headlight low beam bulbs. I'm a little confused, I see #9006 and #9006XS !!! One is straight and one is curved !!! Can I use one or the other? Why do I see 2 different numbers? These things are a lot of $ and I don't what to screw up. Thanks!

You want the straight ones, with the curved ones you may not be able to plug in the connector because the area is so tight.

Yep. You want the straight ones. I used the others but I made some adapters.

Because some vehicle use the curved ones, but not the PT

Per the Owner's Manual, you want the 9005XS for the low beam and 9006XS for the high beam. The "S" designates the straight configuration.



You can see in Todd's pic, that without his home made adapter, if the light housing was installed in the vehicle, it would be almost impossible to get the connector onto the center bulb, with the curved connector that it has.
