Headlamp Bulbs - Non-Xenons ( halogen )

A question for non-xenon owners:

Can anyone tell me what type of main/dipped headlamp bulbs are fitted to the standard headlamps please? I want to order some upgraded bulbs in time for my new car arriving in two weeks?

The standard bulbs on my E46 were H7 bulbs and I upgraded them with some Osram power bulbs that claim to be 50% more powerful. I want to do the same with my new car. They were as good as my neighbour's xenon-fitted E46 and only cost 35 !

Thanks

Dave

i never changed bulbs for my e90 but i have for my audi tt. it was a bitch. you have to remove the whole front bumper to remove the headlights to change the signal and parking bulb. nice car but poor design. the dealer told me it would cost 200 bucks if they do it. bulbs cost is 20 bucks a pop.
