Ok, so I wanted to replace my foglight bulbs with something cheap and a little more bluish looking to match wtih the Razo Premium White Zeros I ordered. I checked my manual, they say the bulbs are size H1. I check online, again, size H1, and just to be sure, I had the guy look it up on the computer...size H1. So I buy my lights, come home and take out the fog light bulb only to find that it is an H3. http://********************/smile/emsad.gif Oh well, I easily exchanged them for the right size. Just thought I'd share. Is this a common mishap? Or do is my C70 just unique (or retarded)?

Nope, you are not the first one. This actually has been discussed in one of the posts few days ago. http://********************/smile/emwink.gif Good thing some of us keep up with EVERY posts...(freak like me)

No, we all have the same problem. I thought I was the only one until I confirmed with c70pusher, the owner's manual is wrong, and the dealer might be wrong, too. We should have the H3 bulbs...the one with the wire sticking out in the back.

Actually, the manual contradicts itself. In two places, it gives two different bulb types. On the back cover it says the fogs are H1. And inside the manual on the specs sheet, it says its an H3...But i've tried H3 and it fits.

Re: Foglight bulbs (c70pusher)

The bulb type info on my 960 is wrong also, go figure! In the part where it tells you how to replace the foglight it says H3, but in the back reference bulb list it says H1. My car uses an H3.
