    They were for 2013 also. All other models including the si coupe are H11. Not sure why only the si sedan 2013/14 are H8's. Also not sure about the new si coupe may be different now with the refresh but for 2013 si coupes were H11's.

    Why not just look in your owners manual. That's why they put them in each car.

    No problem probably would have been quicker. Than a response from a possible 14 owner.

    Right. The fogs switched from h8 to h11, which was posted earlier.

    The low beams are still 9006, high are 9005.

    If you fit h11s in your lows, that's fine, but they are still supposed to be 9006. Check the bulbs the car came with from the factory when you pull them out. The lows are 9006.

    I put 9006 in my lows and didn't have any issues at all.

    I drive a 14 Si Sedan.

    It's probably only coupes then. You have the same lights as us 12-13 owners.

    I figured I would post these up since there seems to be a little confusion around the bulb changes for the '14 sedans and I myself made some assumptions off this thread rather than checking my manual... I know, I know, pretty noobish move for a veteran modder. Main difference between the Si and other sedan models is the fogs but I don't know if this info is consistent for the coupe models. So anyways, here you go...

    '14 Sedans (Si)
    Low - HB4
    High/DRL - HB3
    Fog - H8

    '14 Sedans (Non-Si)
    Low - HB4
    High/DRL - HB3
    Fog - H11

    That's correct.
    Si coupe uses H11 for low beam and fogs.

    H8 and H11 are the same correct? Just higher wattages?

    Actually the locking tabs are different between the two... looking down directly at the top of the bulb the H11 has a wider tab at the 12 o'clock point. You may be able to force the fit but in the past I have trimmed this tab to match that of an H8 using tin snips. I tried this on my sedan before ordering new H8 LEDs and the bulbs worked fine just not sure what kind of life span could be gotten out of them.
