    Ive just ordered the H7 bulbs osram nightbreakers and am i thinking right as the dipped beam and the main beam have the same type of bulbs? (both H7 bulbs) also the side lights are meant to be 5w and when i go on ebay looking for them they say 55w and fits my car that doesnt sound right does it? 5 series e60 3.0d m sport 05? help please

    h7 bulbs are correct - you have 2 per headlight - one for the dipped beam and one for main beam. The sidelights are 5W .... If you want white angel eyes then buy led versions with load resistors so you don't get canbus errors. Let me know how you get on. I'm getting my parking sensors sorted after gettng my bumpers resprayed - next job with my lights

    I'm not very mechanically minded - had the flaps removed by PMW LTd in Chelmsford - very happy they are out!
