I want to go back to reasonably priced headlights

I have a 97 528i with HI Xenons... want to put just regular $15 per bulb headlights in it. The bulbs that it SAYS are the ones are NOT even close...no connector on them- just 2 tabs. It says H7's are the right ones.

9006's fit the harness but only fit in the Hi Beam socket (twist)

What in the hell fits the bigger Lo Beam twist?

High beams are h7 's ( inner lights ), low beams / xenons are DS2 bulbs the bigger socket. You disconnect the giat red and black wire harness to access them

Is this what you needed to know? Im sorry if I misunderstood your question.

I spend at least 2 hours a day cleaning my car

Why would you want to go back to cheap halogen bulbs? about 10 years ago i bought my first car with the HID lights in it and I havent gone back to halogens since... you can see sooo much better and they look better too
