Hi there. When purchasing light bulbs for the headlights low and high beams, look at the old bulb and compare it to the new bulb. The part numbers do not need to match, such as, getting a bulb from a local parts store will have a different part number than a dealership. If the bulbs look the same, then it will work. Also make sure that the luminance is the same. If you need further assistance with your headlight bulb replacements, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
