    My advice would be have a search on here, or have a look on Wikipedia, you'll get info there. As for the actual type you should get, regarding wattage (35w or 50w) or colour temperature (colour chart below), all down to personal choice.

    From my experience (i have a preface 1.8 LS), you need to get a kit of H7 bulb type (wattage & colour of your choice) which MUST be CANBUS Pro & you need to have cancellers too, this stops the 'strobing' that alot of people have problems with. Where you get them from is again personal choice, some people steer clear of certain retailers, some swear by them.
