    Bulb specs and types

    You may find this useful when you need to replace bulbs. There are some quite unusual bulbs on the S15

    Unless stated, all bulbs are white

    Headlight unit
    Low beam: H1 (55W)
    High beam: HB3 9005 (60W)
    OEM HID low beam: D2S (35W) 4300k?.

    Exterior
    Sidelight/parking: 501 (5W)
    Front indicators: 581 (21W - amber) These bulbs have an OFFSET base bayonet
    Side indicators: 501 (5W) Although white, you will require amber bulbs if swapping to clear/smoked indicator units
    Fog lamps: H3 (55W)

    Rear combination lamp
    Indicator: 7440 (21W)
    Brake/tail: 7443 (21W/5W) Two per side (one per side on ADM S15s)
    Reverse: 921 (18W) If a reversing light is converted to a fog light, you will require a red bulb
    High mounted brake: 921 (18W)

    Number plate: 501 (5W)

    Interior
    Interior main: 269 (10W) 30mm length
    Map lights: 233/BA9 (8W or 10W)
    Boot: 501 (3.4W) Although the workshop manual states 3.4W, 5W is going to be much easier to find

    501 bulbs

    These are the ones with no metal thread or socket, but just wires and they slot into place.

    But, where the hell can you get the bulbs from (wedge type)? I don't want leds, just normal bulbs, also coloured, but dunno where to get them.

    Anyone?

    Anyone recomend a good set of 501's other than the ones posted above? Need a decent white set for sidelights as compared to HID's they are a terrible yellow. Just wondered if anyone had a recommendation, not really after a strong blue tint.
