Bulb confusion

so, I did the whole fleebay thing with the bulbs. Was told I was getting full beams, dip beams and sidelights.

-the full beams fit fine.
-for the main/dip beams, I was given a 1 flat prong bulb set? the ones in the car are two prong. anyone know why this is? I ended up using these 1 prong bulbs for sidelights as they were the same bulbs?
-then for sidelights i was given these small pellet things

I can't find this type of bulb anywhere!? Can someone shed some light on this please (excuse my lame pun)

I did the same thing got those as sidelight replacement however found that they won't fit. On the 156 they are a replacement for the rear number plate bulbs, not sure on other models.

Front side/parking lights on 156 are H6W (halogen bulbs!), dipped H7, main H1, fogs H1, number plate W5W

On the 147 they are: dipped H7, main H7, fogs H1, front side/parking H6W, number plate W5W

Try powerbulbs.co.uk for a good fitting guide (and the right bulbs!)

Some fitting guides (e.g. Halfrauds) insist that the side/parking bulb is a W5W!
