    I am looking for replacement bulbs for my ML320, I want the bright white type for the dipped, main, fog and sidelights. I have looked on Ebay but there seems to be 2 different kits with different bulb types so I am a bit confused. Can anyone point me in the right direction.

    Thanks

    Owners manual lists the correct bulb size for the car.

    Ok I know what bulb fitment I need (H7, H11, 501), I now need recommendations on suitable bulbs. I am looking for the Xenon effect with increased visability to replace the standard halogens, I have seen a kit on Ebay for just £15 but other websites are charging upwards of £25 just for a pair.

    Thanks

    I decided to replace my main and dipped beam bulbs with Osram Nightbreaker Plus, a seller on Amazon has them for £14.95 a pair so I bought 2 pairs which also includes free 501 sidelight bulbs. I will leave the fog lamps as they are for now as they are used infrequently.
