    headlights are h7 bulbs
    sidelights are '501 capless' bulbs
    any good motor store should help you out

                  I normally get mine from www.powerbulbs.com, plenty of options available if you do a search by the car make/model and you normally have the bulbs within 2 days.

                        Thinking of getting some of these, my bulbs seem terrible. Low beam barely lights up the road.

                        Are these a good improvement? I had some 90% more light bulbs in my old car from halfords and they were pretty good. But a set of H1 and H7s of these from halfords comes to about £90 :| No way am I paying that

                          Id say that due to less glare they dont seem as bright as yellow halogens, but after a few nights driving behind them you get used to it.

                          Id check your headlight alignment if your getting back light on standard...
