The smaller ones are for parking lights. They don't produce lower voltage; they run on +12V but they use low wattage bulbs (maybe 5W?). If you don't want the "yellow" look you may be able to find "whiter" burning bulbs or even LEDs.

T10

Just changed my headlights on my E320 to the new ones. To get rid of the lights you are talking you need to buy two new one T10 Light bulbs. I just got mine on ebay for 3 dollars shipped. What color temperature do you have on your low beam? If you have really blue search for "T10 BLUE BULB" but if you have the white look on your low beam then search for "T10 wide bulb" and do not buy the LED lights because they don't get a wide angle of light which you need for those lights. Look on ebay Item number: 120262251774. Thats what I would recommend.

good catch, ohlord. folks who have replaced their OEM headlights with after-
market projectors should pay close attention because it is possible that they
now need wedge bulbs. important to pull the plug and check before you
presume that you have H6W bayonet...when in fact, the aftermarket manuf
converted over to W5W. e.g. 210 Depos use W5W
