Problem of headlight buld replacement, surprised...

hi friends:

I am trying to replace my headlights bulbs with Hella H7 55w bulb. But when I take off my old bulbs which were not installed by me, I was surprised to see the socket did not look like H7 style.

I am attaching 2 pictures here so you can see what they look like. I am wondering if the previous owner modified the circuits, or what I am showing here actually is the bulb and its socket together. I doubt if the bulb in the picture can be taken off from the socket after which I might be able to see the 2-pin H7 underneath?

Thanks a lot. I have already unhooked the bulbs, so I hope some pointers pop up quickly. Otherwise I won't be able to drive at night

Ok, I found out my old part is OSRAM Xenarc D2S 35W 66040 BULB. So should I go ahead replacing them with HELLA H7, or should I keep them on my car? BTW, they dont look good (even the colors are not the same) and one of them is working on and off pretty randomly.....
