05 ML500 - what type of lights

Looking to replace my xenons and my fog lights. Does anyone know the bulb type for both of these?

For instance, on my BMW they are 9006 for fogs and H7 for the headlights...

Anyone?

05 ML500 - what type of lights

For the 05 ML 500:

If you have true Bi-Xenons headlamps, then you need 35 watt Philips or Sylvania OSRAM D2S HID xenonarc bulbs and H7's for your high beams.

I think the latest ML's halogen headlamps, they need H7's for both low and high beams, but I can't remember exactly... I have a 2005 ML 500, if you don't have your manual, I can look later at home for the information..

For your fog lights, you need H8 bulbs..

Good luck..

I would suggest the Philips 6000K Ultinons for HID bulbs...

Thanks guys... has anyone bought the conversion ballasts so your fogs are xenon as well?

I did this for my M3 so my fogs were xenon 6k just like my headlights... was thinking about doing the same for the ML... I found a conversion kit by McCulloch - anyone with experience of this kit?

I dont believe you can fit an HID bulb in that housing, you need to upgrade to a projector style housing
