Sorry to jump on this thread but I figured two posts about the headlights would be silly. I've just picked up my S2 and the offside dipped bulb is out. Am I right in saying it is an H1 bulb and if so does anyone have a good recommendation for replacements. Thanks and again sorry for hijacking.

Derek - If it's a wiring issue can't it be fixed?


David, they're H1's and I think a common upgrade is HID's for them. Elise Shop sell the upgrade kits, I'm sure they're less than £100.
