D2S - HID low beam
H7 - conventional halogen high beam

At least that's how it is in my car.

You could always go home, take off the cover, and find out for yourself.

The bowl should be h7's, the projector should be D2S. Although looking at that website...looks like they're both h7

She bought you those lights to replace the ones that you posted pictures of? I hope not. The ones you posted pics of "look" like the OEM xenon projectors lights which are perfect. The ones she bought are cheap aftermarket ones that you will regret.
