Default whats the difference between 9004 and 9007 HID bulbs ?

Sorry to post this here but i got 2 views and no responses in lighting. TIA

I bought my civic with a HID kit that was already installed and i recently had a bulb go out. I went to 2 autopart stores and both said that they don't have it in stock. I looked them up online and the 9004 and 9007 look similar and i was wondering which one is going to fit right ? These are the bulbs I was going to get http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/_Car-...1%7C240%3A1318

Biggest difference is the filament location. 9004 uses transverse filaments, which is crappy for headlight use IMHO, similar to H3 foglight bulbs with a transverse filament. 9007 bulbs have axial filaments, like H4, 9006, and 9005 bulbs do.

9004 and 9007 bulbs are not HID. What year is your Civic? 1988 and newer do not use either 9004 or 9007.

So the 9007 will fit right ? Click the image to open in full size. This is the headlight that was in there.
