Projector Headlights and Replacing bulbs

i have aftermarket projector headlights on my accord (picture below). i was wondering if anyone knew which bulbs are available for replacement on the projectors because oem replacements for an accord arent the same.

Re: Projector Headlights and Replacing bulbs

the bulb design is not much different with h1's or h3's the h1's are a bit longer I belive meaning the coil goes into the socket farther

I didnt really hate them too much I did buy them afterall the light output really sucked IMO
