    HID bulb ID please...

    Aftermarket kit fitted to Bruv's car, it's stooped working and can't seem to find a match. Only 3 types at Halfrauds and they're 60 a piece! And don't match. Nothing written on them, and don't seem to come apart anywhere either, so hard wired? Any ideas?

    Current Chariots...

    Looks like H7 but need to see more of the Base to identify it properly.

    Hid kits are about 15 quid a pop from eBay and that's for both sides.

    Think he found a couple that looked about right on eBay. For that price it's worth a punt.
    Trouble is whoever fitted the kit obviously had it throw up a fault light. They've wired everything up wrong with resistors everywhere.
    Main beam is now the fog lights iirc.

    The retrofit bulbs like that usually are the same fitting as the standard halogen bulbs (like the H1 in the 850 and H7 in the P1 x70) so you just order that bulb type.

    Resistors are usually a given but it's best to keep them tidy and screw them to the bodywork.

    Getting the bloody wires round the right way also helps lol.

    As dave said, it'll be the same fitment as what is supposed to be in the car.
