I agree the rear stop light is 1057 or7506 or 1156. not 7528, what is weird is that auto parts stores list 7528. Incorrect

100 watt are very very VERY hot. You risk damaging the headlight housing. Dont do it

All I can speak for is the Xenons, where the low and high beams are the D1S. The DRL's and the flash-to-pass are the same H7 bulb.

Thanks for the heads-up. So is the 7506 the reverse light? I don't understand what the difference is between a tail light and a stop light. Aren't they the same thing?

True, HB4 also called 9006 bulbs for the fogs on m-tech e90.

BTW, here's the complete list:

The different fog light bulbs for different e9x:
e90/e91 non m-sport bumper: H11.
e90/e91 with m-sport bumper: HB4, also called 9006.

e92/e93 non m-sport bumper: H8.
e92/e93 with m-sport bumper: H11.

City lights

Please someone help me with this.


My cousin has a E90 which we've ordered crates and crates of mods for- and have figured out the setup we're going to run, but we can't find the city light bulb


I was shown a diagram at the dealer where the E90s running HIDS use a different city light bulb than the halogen. He unfortunetley has the halogen setup.

I'm trying to get LEDS so they light up his halogoen- some dope ultra violet ones, very very white bright. The dealer showed me the bulb and it was a 12v peanut bulb but he couldn't figure out the number code. I've seen E90s, multiple E90s with super bright led city lights, gives it such a mean & clean appearence. Please help me out!

im a little bit confused, i have the oem xenon headlight pkg and want to know what is the code for the xenon headlamps (not drl)? i'm assuming DS1 will work but is that a part# for a brand or the universal code meaning that when i want to change it has to say DS1.


1 more thing, what 'K' is the OEM denon bulb? and if i change to 8000K bulbs which is brighter and 'bluer'?

tnx in advan
