your HID bulbs will be either D1S or D2S depending on the year, the earlier 7series were all using D2S

I would like to change out all my bulbs but when it comes to HID I'm confused. samadkins29's guide does not mention low beam or high beam bulbs it just talks about foglights which is why I'm a bit confused. So my question is what do I need to order if I want to replace my low beam/high beam headlight bulbs, wattage is a big concern for me so I'll need to know everything. I'm currently looking at these but I don't want to order the wrong thing can someone help me out? Thank you

If you're looking to get just the low beam themselves, any D2S bulb will be fine. For the most part I've always seen them being 35watts. I had the stock 4300k and got some 6000k off of eBay for like 10 or 15 bucks, I forgot.

The reason those are not mentioned is because your low beams are already HID (D2S bulbs) and you should not put HID in your high beam "flashers". The real high beams are still using the low beams, just tilting them back up.

Hey Suri, Where did you have the dual exhaust done. Can I ask if you can post a picture from under the rear so I can get a peep at how they are routed. They look tough....
