Well, I just happened to be playing with my ellipsoids, and I as actually look at the bulb, it says h7. I was always under the impression ellipsoids used h1 bulbs. H1 is what I ordered in my HID kit. Does anyone know if I can use an H1 bulb in an H7 assembly? I don't want to return it and pay restocking if I dont have to.

I always thought it was H1 too....

Im going to take out my fogs in a little awhile and try to put them in the housing. I guess I'll find out then.

Well now Im pissed. My housings clearly say H1 on them. But the projector is clearly designed for H7. I took out my fogs and instantly noticed the difference in size. The H1 bulb and base could almost fit in the slot for the H7 bulb. Hopefully I can exchange the parts.

I got depo they are H1 what did you get. The marking should be on the corner of the glass. to retro fitt your H1 HID in your H7 socket is not so hard.

I have depo as well. That is why Im confused. I took a pic of the housing, that clearly says 12V H1 55W. I'll post it up in just a sec. I was going to earlier but the digi died. I'll also snap one of the bulb and fitting.

the bulb, clearly marked h7.

As for retrofitting the h1, I dont think I can. When I put my fog bulb in the projector, it made contact with the sheild inside.

Since DEPO are like knockoffs made in Taiwan etc. they prolly ran out of parts or H1 assemblys etc. and custom fitted those H7 housing to yours.....as far as I remember Majority of the Euros Bimma ellipsoid houses H1 bulbs..only...
