Hi,

I really want to get replacement foglight bulbs for my facelifted e46. However, I'm not sure what type of bulbs - H1, H3, etc - I should be looking for. Does anyone know the specs I should be looking for?

Also, I'm thinking of getting 'superwhites' or 'french yellow'. My car is black. Any thoughts?

E46 should be using 9006 for your foglights, I dont think you can get them in Yellow, but if you do find them, let us know where you did.

H4 is also referenced to as a 9003 or an HB2.
9004 bulb is also referenced to as a HB1.
9005 bulb is also referenced to as a HB3.
9006 bulb is also referenced to as a HB4.
9007 bulb is also referenced to as a HB5.
H.I.D. bulbs are referenced to as 9500, D2R, D2S

Thanks guys!

I ordered my 9006 / HB4 Bluevisions today from Powerbulbs.com website today as replacement foglights.

Next mod... better suspension, then possibly clears.

They were 24 euros for the pair - free shipping to TO. If there's no GST when they get into Canada, that should work out to 36 bucks or so.
