You can also do an H9 swap with your existing high beam bulbs, just have to break the tabs in the connectors so they plug in. Using OEM bulbs you'll go from 55W/1350 lumen low beams to 65W/2100 lumen, it's safe for the wiring and no blue color.
To have H9's all around you'd just need to buy a second set, and it's also a good idea to get some spares as the rated life on the H9's is much less than the H11s (an acceptable tradeoff IMO).
I did this conversion a while back and the low beam lighting is much better.
For good quality H9 bulbs you can go to Daniel Stern's site as referenced above, or Susquehanna Motorsports. Unfortunately most parts stores do not carry them since very few cars currently use H9 bulbs.
