Re: H7 Xenon Bulbs

Should be H7 for dipped and H1 for High/Fog.

I assume you mean Std lamps filled with Xenon gas to make the light appear whiter and not the HID Xenon lamps?

Re: H7 Xenon Bulbs

My 156 lights are woeful! I believe they are standard and have heard they're a nightmare to get out. Anyone have any recommendations for new bulbs?

when you say "they" you really should say what "they" is, dipped beam or main beam. dipped is h7 main is h1, you cant fit an h1 bulb in an h7 light and vice versa because they wont fit. if you want to fit the xenons to your dipped then you definately need h7.
