Euro Light Gremlins

Woah!  I'm confused.  I thought the 9003's were just a stricter (less
variance) version of the H4 and that aside from no higher wattage versions
as available on the H4's, they were interchangeable.  As a matter of fact,
take a look at this...

I know the connectors on a sealed beam bulb are not the same as when hooking
up an H4.  So you're saying the ground/ high beam and low beam locations are
different in a 9003 vs. H4?
