While it's nice to know the type of bulb you need beforehand, the easiest way to find the type is to remove the defective bulb and look at the markings.

Thanks! Are you sure the H7 high beams are 35W? I can only find H7 55 watt bulbs. Are you confusing the E92 with the E90? I think the E92 uses H8 35 watt bulbs and the E90 uses H7.

Now the high beam is the inside light correct? The Xenon is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside? Is the High beam easy to change?

Thanks!

High Beam H7

I just switched out my D1s with a ProLumen/Hella-Valeo Igniter bulb (35W). It;s not quite 6000K but better than OEM and matches my MTEC H11 Fogs. The high beam bulb is housed in sort of a tube - you will need a tool that can reach it. For mods, you will need to remove the fender liner and access from the inside of the wheel well. If you remove the wheel, you will have more room to work. BTW, I gave up trying to change the High Beam Halogens - I just left them.

H21W, although I dont know if they have a different name, because I am having one hell of a time trying to find an aftermarket one.



Does anyone know if the H21W rear fog/adaptive brake light has a different number, it is a 21 watt halogen bulb, thanks!
