Confused by my 159 main beam headlights
I've been steadily changing the lights in my 2008 159 Ti. I've an HID kit on the dipped beams, and this is about to be replaced with another HID kit but at 55W. I've installed LED sidelights too, and after this the fogs and main beam are left.
I bought some H1 120% ring bulbs for the main beam and opened the bonnet up tonight. After much fiddling, I finally released the retaining clip to get the old, rather yellow bulb out.
To my complete surprise it was an H7. To my greater surprise, the electrical connector for the main beam was two prong female, matching the two prong male of the H7. The H1 is one prong male.
So my question is, what bulb should I have in my main beams?!
