Lightbulb Bulb Replacement List

I have here a list of the bulb sizes in a 2003 325xi with Bi-Xenon headlights.

I could not find a list here, and I searched elsewhere as well and could not find a list. So I went on www.sylvania.com and got the list from there. However, my searching skills are not the best at all. Actually its pretty bad.

I decided to copy+paste that info here so that it may be easier for some members

Note: This was a list generated by sylvania.com for my 2003 325xi with bi-xenon headlights. If you have something newer, or something older, and with out bi-xenon, the bulbs may be different.

Aside from the extra "brighter" "whiter" and "long life" bulbs, I'm not sure why they listed two different bulbs for the rear turn signals, the stop lights, and the step/courtesy lights.

I hope this helps people

The spec for my backup light is a h21w? Was this a change that was made or is it interchangeable ?
