    Bulb Help!!

    Hi i was wondering what the names of the bulbs are which i need to fit on my astra MK4. i want to change my botton fog lights and my headlights. I am aware that the headlights are called H7, but what are the foglights called? by fog lights i mean the lights underneath the headlights. Are they 9005 bulbs i need or H3's? because i have read two different topics which say they are H3's and one topic ses the bulbs i need for my foggies are 9005's!

    H7 is your dipped beam! so your laughing! order some h3's and you will have replaced ALL your lights!

    H7 = Dipped beam
    9005 = Main beam
    H3 = Fogs, Unless you have a GSI.
