Default BOSCH/ZKW upgrades and bulbs

Hello - what bulbs do Ellipsoid headlights (non-HID) use?

And turn signals are 1157 right?

Thanks!

Both low and high beams are H1 (any specific wattage?). And how about city lights? Any recommendations there?

Thank you for the suggestion

Just get them on Amazon. There are no wattage options for headlight bulbs. They all have mandates to control light output. All H1 are 55watt. Osram Nightbreaker are the best for light output. Avoid any stupid blue hue bulbs.

Seem to remember back in the day you were able to get higher wattage H1. Thought I had 85W H1 and 140 W H4 in my old VW but that was 30 years ago.

Thank you, do you know what kind of bulb the city light uses?
