    Hi

    Can anyone tell me which headlight bulb (e.g. H1, H7 etc) fits the 2007
    Vauxhall Vectra. I find the standard bulbs rubbish and plan to upgrade to
    higher spec bulb but need to know which fitting to buy before removing the
    headlight (only way to change offside is to remove whole headlight unit!).
    The car is too new to be listed in the car catalogues.

    Thanks
    Sean

    I though that all the new 2007 Vectra's were HID or Zenon lamps?
    Basically the bulbs are £50 to £100 each?
    Is the main beam OK? Is the auto leveling (if fitted) working OK?
    Check that the dip beam has not been set too low. Some dealers set the
    Zenon dip far too low so that it can't dazzle oncomming traffic. In my
    opinion they set it FAR too low such that there is no forward vision and
    it can be tweaked slightly to give a better dip. DONT overdo it thou'
    zenon lamps are very bright and a dip beam set too high is increadibly
    annoying and dangerous.!!!

    The non-HID's are H7. You can do them in situ, if you've got little
    hands.
