    2009 Rabbit Bi-Xenon Bulbs?

    Hey all, new to the forum but have spent a good time reading through posts and learning. I have a 2009 Rabbit with the Canadian sport package (because apparently the US has a different variant) and I need help figuring out what bulbs to get. I've done a few searches and have come up empty. My rabbit has the Bi-Xenon headlights and one of them is no longer white/blue. It's more of a yellow. Anyway I'm looking to replace both to a fresh pair but can't seem to figure out what bulbs I need. I've heard of people using H7s but I can't figure out if those work in my Bi-Xenons?

    So, what bulbs do I need to re-obtain the white/blue light in my Bi-xenon DRL/Low beams?

    Thanks!

    Have you pulled a bulb to see what it says on the base?

    You may need a D2S for the low beam, the H7 is for the high beam, see this bulb guide: https://www.osram-americas.com/en-us...n.aspx#fldYear

    Good plan to do them in pairs so you get the same colour temperature on both sides!

    You do not have Bi-Xenon bulbs if you have separate low and hi-beams.

    A Bi-Xenon has both the low and hi-beam function.



    So, take your bulbs out and look...

    Just pulled the bad bulb....Phillips D2S. Pulled the good bulb but couldn't get the actual bulb itself free to read what kind it was. It was blue though. They are for sure Bi-Xenon because HB/LB are together.
