The guide I looked at said H1, but I looked at another and it said H7, :rofl

And I can't recall of hand what type they have now :hihi

One guide says H1 for main and dipped.

Other says H7 dipped, H1 main.

................................Up to 08/94 the dipped bulb was H1.

after this it was H7.

To be sure just check the rear of your dipped beam bulb, h7 has 2 connectors, H1 has single connector
