Exclamation replacement bulb for 2001 320i


I am a new bimmer owner and the previous owner ****ed around with the low and high beam bulbs, and just the other day the passenger side blew on the low beams, and the high beams, one is brighter than the other. So i need to replace all high beam and low beam bulbs, just so that i kno everything is good. if someone could help me and let me know what the bulb code/model is? Greatly appreciated. (2001 BMW 320i)

Also when i shift into first and second, i hear a thump .... any idea what this is?

If you have the halogen headlights, you should have H7 bulbs for both low beam and high beam. I am assuming you do not have the Xenon headlights.
