Hello
I dont know if this is only for European models, or if the US models also have them, but within my headlight casing I have daytime running light bulbs that come up from underneath the casings and shine whenever I turn the headlight notch one turn. Then the regular headlights of course start when I turn it yet another notch. Now my question is, does anyone know what these small bulbs are called? I THINK theyre just called "5w bulbs" and Ive seen such on eBay, but I wanted to confirm this. Thanks in advance!

Well, I'm originally from Austria. We call them city lights. We don't have the corner lights like the US models. When I changed the headlights on my 300CE to European headlights I had both on notch one, the corner lights and the city lights. Most cities in Europpe have street light so you can get away with less light in the city.

Thanks for the answer, but I think I need to rephrase my question. I meant.. What kind of bulbs is it? I want to exchange them for bluer bulbs, so I needed to know if they have a model or socket number (like H1, H7, etc).
