Lightbulb List of Bulbs for a W210 E430?

Just wondering if there is a complete list somewhere of all the bulbs used on the E430, their model numbers and wattages? Thinking of some upgrades and such but need to know what I have first. Don't really want to have to pull them all just to see, especially as some may have been replaced with auto zone bulk stuff before I bought it. Figured to check here before I bother the local dealer.

--------------------------------------------
From the owners manual I have:

Front Exterior:
Hi/Lo Beams - H7 (55W)
Xenon's (???)
Turn Signal Lamp - 1156 NA (26.9/5 W/32/4 cp bulb)
Parking & Standing Lamp - H 6W (6 W bulb)

Rear Taillamp Assemblies (outside ones on body):
Turn Signal (top)- ?? (21 W/24 cp bulb)
Stop, Tail & Parking Lamp (outside lower)- ?? (21/4 W bulb)
Tail, Parking & Side Marker (inside lower) - ?? (5 W/4 cp bulb)

Rear Taillamp Assemblies (inner ones on trunk lid):
Driver Side Foglight (other side is blank) - ?? (21 W/32 cp bulb)
Backup Lamp - ?? (21 W/32 cp bulb)

Side Marker Lamp - ?? (5 W/4 cp bulb)

The High Mounted Stop Lamp and Side View mirrors use LED's.
-------------------------------------------------------------


The Owners Manual doesn't cover model numbers for anything other than the front , doesn't mention the interior lights and I assume there's one under the hood as well.


I'm also looking for a night pic of a E430 with the Selective Yellow bulbs in the fog capsules, opinions on that pro or con. Would love to upgrade the rear lamps (including activating the second rain light) to cause any tailgaters to go blind if they get too close. The front is easy and I expect nights to look like I'm walking on the surface of the sun if it goes the way I want when I hit the highs. I'm not meaning to be an idiot to regular traffic, I just like reasonable options to be as visible to everyone else as possible and when out in the dark alone plenty of warning with all the deer around here.


(And, yes, I've already emailed Stern for his recs.)

You have to remember the light monitor is designed for euro spec bulbs with specific draw. If you start messing around you could have your hands full.

I've found if you replace lamps in pairs, your ok. If you only replace one and it's current draw is different than the mate, it can trigger the "lamp defective" message.

I have higher current bulbs in the headlights, side marker lights, and backup lights w/o any issues so far. (backups are 50W halogens)

I don't plan on doing anything that'll mess with the Lamp Monitor Circuit. Yes I want my car to light up like a Christmas Tree, but only so either I can see better while driving or other people can see me better. May even upgrade the interior lights if thats possible so I can get a tan while reading a map. Don't really know yet, just starting to feel it out...

Lightbulb Lampenboxen

I asked about "Lamp Boxes" but was told they are not available Stateside. Don't know if I believe all that, he didn't even take time to look it up, but I have the part number for my '01 (B6 681 0018) and will try running that by the local Benz parts manager. Even if I do start upgrading to higher output lamps I would still want the box to throw on top of the spare tire for convenience. Thanks for the pdf Franasia, first I'd seen of those.

Seems like a dumb question, but I can't find the answer anywhere.
But what are the two lights in the front between the head light and the grill called?
What bulb do they use?
TIA
