If you buy Cibie lamps you would get the H4 Hi/Lo for the out side and the H1 for the center two.<P>I think your car came with lamps simmular to the cibie from the factory. US models had crap sealed beam things that I replaced with Hella lamps simmular to the cibies except they didn't have city lamps bulit in.<P>

Oh yeah, mine don't have the city lights either. But if I replace them, maybe i'll get them with them. Can I get the e-code replacements from a dealership? <P>Thanks for the info.

Whatever you do, do it in symentrical sets.<BR><P>

You just want the lamps to be even.<P>
