Foglight bulbs
« on: August 26, 2010, 08:36:50 pm »
A quick question I know but am I right in saying the foglights for the AGP are H1 12v  ???

Thinking of getting these bulbs for the foglights if so to match the colour of my headlights:

    just a bit of a technicality but as the channel isles aren,t part of the UK could the lighting regulations be a bit different?

    wrong thread, meant to be in the xenon bit

    just had a look at the abarth parts catalogue, there H1 on there, so a contradiction between this and the handbook. better go with what you can see :thumb:

    Hi guys,

    I was going to get the guys to replace the fog lights in my AGP this week and got the H3 bulbs like it said in the owners book... Although they couldnt do it as it was the wrong type... according to them it uses the H2 bulb ???

    Gets more and more confusing  :banghead:

    Just checked H2 bulb on google images and its definately not one of those. Definately looks like a H1 after seeing the pics

    Right, hopefully i can put all of your minds at ease on this one :thumb:

    I have just phoned up Research Abarth and told them that i think they told me the wrong bulb type before and they have now confirmed to me that it is definatly an H1 bulb used in the fog lights!

    Hope this helps
