    Default Which bulb types for facelift?

    Just thinking of installing HID's in my facelift lights but I don't know what the bulb types are. Is it H1 for main beam & H7 for high beam?

    Can anyone foresee any problems with these Ebay kits as they seem to be quite cheap.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/SLIM-HID-XENON...3A1%7C294%3A50

    Also, what's the best way to wire them into the the headlight supply? Should I spade crimp them into the bulb plug or take the wire directly off the loom plug and use bullet plugs into the HID transformer?

    Huh? Main beam and high beam are the same thing.

    H7 bulbs for dipped beam.
    H1 bulbs for main beam.
